Quotes

Publicista Campaña Sí: [Speaking to the YES Campaign board] If you want to scare people, you have to scare them with their past, their past poverty, long lines to buy bread. The opposition has its cries of socialism, yes. But the only thing that interests people is the scramble, and also they know that socialism is miserable. Instead you have a system in which anyone can be rich. Attention!, not 'everyone'... 'anyone'. You can not lose when all are committed to be that 'anyone'.

Although I found the subject matter exciting, the film was a disappointment.
7 July 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"No" is a film that was nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Perhaps I am wrong, but I wonder if most of this nomination is because of the subject matter, as the peaceful ouster of Pinochet was a wonderful things--and few would disagree with this. However, as for the movie itself, I was shocked how uninteresting it was, as the film lacked energy and, more importantly, emotion. This is really surprising because you'd expect a lot of tears and a lot of anger, as the Pinochet regime was responsible for many atrocities and human rights violations--and you'd THINK this would come through in the film. Instead, much of the film, especially the first half, was plodding and bereft of feeling. Where is the anger?!?! Fortunately, the film did get better in the second half when agents of Pinochet tried to intimidate the opposition...but still I expected so much more.

Overall, this film is mildly interesting but should have been a lot better. For a better look at the Pinochet administration, try watching the three "Battle of Chile" films. Additionally, for a better film that is critical of repression in South America, try the Oscar-winning "The Official Story"--a film that has heart, emotion and is much harder-hitting in the way it addresses the fall of the Argentinian regime.
