Movie Info

1974, Scotland. Bob Fulton, a Rolls-Royce engine inspector, returns to his section, upset and anxious. He's just told his colleagues that a Chilean Air Force jet engine has arrived in the factory for maintenance and he's refusing to let it go through, in protest against the recent military coup of General Pinochet. He's seen the images of people packed into football stadiums and the Chilean Air Force jets bombing Santiago, and now one of the engines from those very same planes is right there, waiting for inspection. He can see his supervisors approaching, he knows he's about to be fired yet he feels a responsibility.


Critic Reviews for Nae Pasaran

All Critics (9)

If it's working-class heroes you're after, you're better off with Nae Pasaran, an unexpectedly moving documentary.

November 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There are some unexpectedly moving moments in an understated film that gets much of its charm from the down-to-earth decency of the characters.

November 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The journey to this point for Sierra speaks of the passion project that it is - and the film benefits hugely from his engagement with the emotional aspects of the story.

November 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The film explores this modest act of rebellion in an admirably low-key way that emphasises the fundamental decency of the men who took a stand.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sierra skilfully compiles archive footage of the coup and its aftermath, but doesn't fully explain how strategically important it was to ground the jets.

October 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a good story well told, with an ending more moving than you'll expect even if you're a practised hanky-reacher in humane tales from the factory floor.
