When filming started in early 2014, it was the last months of Sebastián Piñera's presidency, a center-right-wing businessman. He didn't allow filming in La Moneda Palace (the seat of the President of the Republic of Chile and the real place where the events depicted in the films happened). The cast and crew traveled to Venezuela to film in the Chancellery, which resembles La Moneda Palace. When center-left-wing Dra. Michelle Bachelet assumed the presidency later that year, the cast and crew returned to Chile to film in La Moneda Palace, under authorization of the president herself, which was very moving for director Miguel Littin and the whole cast.

The movie Allende as a whole is a good film, but in depth it lacks the emotion in the acting and special effects could use improvement. The plot of this movie follows the day after Salvador Allende is elected as the president of Chile, and the plot of the forces that would attack the palace. For example the acting was a bit underplayed because the people firing guns never reload. Another example of how the acting and special effects is lacking is when Allende's adviser shoots himself in the head it is very evident that it included mediocre special effects.One good thing about the movie as a whole is the history it follows is a great way to show what could've happened in the day that Allende was attacked. To conclude this movie all around could use better acting and special effects but the plot of it is a great way to show what could've been happening inside the Chilean Presidential Palace.
