It’s not everyday that one can say that their mother (in her late 70s) was able to find something on the internet that I, her tech-savvy son, had missed but apparently there was a review of my film on the chilean film website (blog?) Revius. It is very positive (which is why I am telling you about it) but it is always interesting to see how viewers respond to my film and this review reflects on the film’s positioning of ‘Papudo’ Valenzuela as a ‘hero’ then as ‘villain’ in an interesting way. The reviewer also mistakenly assumes that my father was in favour of the military coup because of his use of the term ‘military government’ rather than ‘dictatorship.’ To be honest I never knew (and I don’t believe my father knew either) that this way of referring to the Pinochet regime was so significant but now that I think about it, of course it is! Anyway, go ahead and read the full review via the link below. It’s in Spanish of course. Google translate at your own risk…
