I need help... My grandfather had a participation in this movie.
13 October 2008 | by lcbreyesSee all my reviews

Hello... i'm here to find someone who can give me this movie. I am from Portugal, but my grandfather was in exile during Pinochet's government. He lived here in Portugal during the 80's and had a participation in this movie. (I think he is the man being tortured). This is just something i would like to find to remember my grandfather and the great man he was. I tried every place to find this movie, even some kind of Chilean "videotheque".

If anyone could send me, sell me, or just contact me for any information about the movie I would appreciate a lot!

Best Regards LR
