Salvador Allende

Patricio Guzmán – Chile – 2004


CHF 15.90 / EUR 14.80

One from the heart, Salvador Allende is the Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzmán's plaintive look back at the rise and violent fall of the world's first democratically elected Marxist president. Mr. Guzmán, who went into exile after the Sept. 11, 1973, coup that led to Allende's death, has returned to the country of his birth with a camera in hand and a storehouse of passionate memories. Alas, little of that passion informs the filmmaking in this documentary dirge, a memento mori about  «the other Sept. 11» that’s drenched in revolutionary tears but lacking much in the way of historical and political insight.
