Brilliantly done
14 December 2011 | by (La Serena, Chile) – See all my reviews

Absolutely worth viewing for a fresh look at what cinema can be.

I was very impressed; This film documents the life (and death) of Violeta Parra while using cinematographic techniques that are, in my opinion, fresh and outstanding.

Also very noteworthy is the authenticity of the conditions in Chile during Violetas' time and the understanding shown of the people in the country are very well done.

I thoroughly recommend it ... take a handkerchief with you and be prepared to be lifted into Violetas' world.

Gracias Andres, Gracias woodproducciones !!
