Storyline

After suffering a heart attack, retired General José Mendieta (Damián Alcázar) is haunted by his dark past as an officer in Operation Condor, the CIA-backed campaign of political repression in Latin America that was responsible for executions, torture, and imprisonments in the 1970's. It is estimated that over 400,000 people were imprisoned and 30,000 forcibly disappeared as a result of these government actions. In a letter to his son Pablo (Bernardo Peña), Mendieta confesses the role he played in the abduction, persecution, and execution of countless men and women during his posting to Chile. Journalist Marco (Carlotto Cotta) and his pregnant wife Luciá (Carla Ortiz) are among those who were arrested, along with their activist friend Antonio (Tomás Fonzi) and revolutionary Andrea (Ana Calentano). They suffer terribly under Mendieta and his cohort Sanera (Rafael Ferro), which leads to a cascade of betrayals, secrets, and stolen lives that spans generations. Olvidados (Forgotten), ...

an important historical portrait of military repression in the 20th century
19 September 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Olvidados is worth seeing if you wish to reflect and educate yourself about the state of repression in the context of 20th century dictatorships in Latin America. I believe that most importantly, the film achieves to portray this problem as a regional problem, reflecting how our nations share an important historical burden.

the display of violent images and military abuse make the viewer reflect on the state of democracy and freedom of press, which are issues far from being resolved in the region today.

The beautiful imagery in several locations (La Paz and Santiago among others) and the showcase of personal relations shown in the film aid to an identification with the figures.

Admittedly, the plot is somewhat simple and the acting is not amazing. But then again, that does not seem to be the main focus of the film.
