Storyline

In 1897, in Lota, Chile, in the face of long days, low pay, debts to the company store, unsafe and deadly working conditions, and widespread child labor, men try to establish a miners' association at one of the largest coal mines in the world. They must face Davis, an iron-fisted and murderous supervisor; there's at least one turncoat, willing to inform on their fellow workers; and, there are passions on all sides, including one between Fernando, a leader of the miners, and Virginia, the godchild of the mine's owners. Can the miners win a victory, and at what cost? Baldomero Lillo, a grocery clerk, records it all. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

good art direction, bad movie
4 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

this movie is the last Chile's movie , and try to relive the past, in Lota a miners town at the 19's century. The direction of art, is good, excellent recreation, good dresses, and a aceptable photo. The problem there is in the script, is simple and predictable, and that does not manage to take to the people to the magic travel of every film.
