[Director] Guzman's film is filled with revelations that will disturb many, including U.S. involvement in the coup. If only Guzman had been more innovative in his presentation.

One from the heart, Salvador Allende is a plaintive look back at the rise and violent fall of the world's first democratically elected Marxist president.

September 5, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5

The controversial Chilean president is ultimately painted sympathetically, and quite convincingly so, in this artful 2004 doc from Patricio Guzmán.

Mixing extensive archival footage and contemporary interviews with survivors of the era, the film gets across, quite powerfully, Allende's long courtship of the Chilean people.

Patricio Guzman's 2004 biography of the Chilean president is less a conventional documentary than a cinematic act of mourning.
