Lawyer investigates conspiracy to shelter a developer of sarin gas
6 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Matar a Todos" (2007) is a story set in Uruguay in 1993. It revolves around an investigation by a law court lawyer, "Julia" (Roxana Blanco). She's looking into the possibility that a chemist named Eugenio Barrios is being secretly sheltered in Uruguay by right-wing political powers. (Barrios was a real-world figure who developed sarin gas for the Chilean government, a military dictatorship, of Augusto Pinochet.) Her investigation meets with resistance from her boss, her father who is a retired general, and her brother who is an officer in the armed forces. She is offered information by an Argentinian journalist. She is encouraged by her former lover.

This is a good movie that seems not to have gotten much circulation and attention. The movie is a low-key political thriller. It eschews manufactured thrills. Instead it chooses realism and an ever-present feeling of pressure, which is a few degrees less than threat. It shows realistically how the established powers-that-be go about frustrating her efforts at finding and revealing the truth. There is deadly violence used against certain figures but not her. They work around her.

These story choices are enough to create a compelling picture. They allow plenty of opportunity to reveal the conflicting views of those who want a more open democracy without secret government and extra-legal maneuvers and those who want a strong state because they fear that truth will make the country ungovernable or install people in power who have left-wing views.

The movie is not done as Costa-Gavras might have done it. It's more subdued. This has its rewards in that when she meets with opposition from different people, we understand and feel its content quite strongly. Actress Blanco does a very nice job of bringing out what she's up against.
