Movie Info

In contrast to the well-limned 1976 documentaries (Parts I and II) on the rise to power of Salvador Allende and the forces that mitigated against him, this sequel lies more in the line of a propaganda feature. All three parts are from a leftist perspective, but this last segment on the final battle of Allende against right-wing militarists and foreign intervention chants a one-note theme. The manipulation of workers by the leading conservatives and other explosive issues are presented via standard communist diatribes and political labels. Unlike the first two films, there is no cross-section of opinions and no acknowledgment of nuances or subtleties, let alone complexities, on the Chilean scene. Exiled Chilean director Patricio Guzman created all three documentaries. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Batalla de Chile: El poder popular


This third part seems more like a complement to the other two made of footage that didn't fit in the previous films, since it repeats many things that were already shown but in greater details to create an overview of the growth of popular power during Allende's government.
