You must be Chilean or Iranian or north Korean to understand this movie. People who breath or used to breath under dictator ship systems know how pretty and how brief is this movie. It's about people who want freedom,liberty and every little things that seem unreachable in their beloved countries. It shows how you can change your world if you just intend to.
Directing is OK. It takes you to 1988 with all the details you like to know about the era. Script is suitable and despite the fact that it is base on a true story and you know what will happen in the end but it make you keep waiting until this people get what they deserve. About acting all the thing that will be reminded is Gael Barnaul. He is outstanding and doesn't need any exaggeration to show the point and his feelings.
If you live under dictator government and you hate it or you care about people who suffer from such thing I seriously recommend you to watch it. Although it is nominated for Oscar but I can assure you it won't win because old dogs in academy always like garbage like Amour. Nevertheless it is my winner for Best foreign movie this year.
