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'.

I'm from Chile and i feel very connected to the film. I'm not old enough to say that I lived that situation. But I feel like I lived it. I investigated a lot about the Chilean dictatorship and i know much about it. I think the film says everything I know about that, but grouped in 1 hour and 45 minutes of film. The style of the camera gives an 80's environment that makes the film look like a documentary. What I like is that the movie was easy to understand, charismatic, funny and very "Chilean"(i mean the accent and the modern culture). It has a dense ambient but gets soften with funny scenes.
