Realistic , shocking and iluminating
15 September 2018 | by mx_ldea18See all my reviews

A documental with a real journalist sense. It shows clearly the historical facts, in specific, the several ways used the opposition against the democratical government of Salvador Allende, provided with a very humanitary vision .

In my opinion, the most important message that the film give to us is: despite your political position in the conflict, there was a fact indubitable. The chilean bourgeoisie fighted by antidemocratical ways the government of Salvador Allende, so they broke the popular will repeteadly.
