Augusto Pinochet was one of the most infamous dictators of the 20th century. One whose criminal involvement was so extensive that by the time he died there were 300 charges still pending which included human rights violations, embezzlement, and tax evasion. Now, a new film will explore the final days of Pinochet when he was ousted from power.
“No” will be starring Gael Garcia Bernal as an ad executive who runs a campaign that will challenge Pinochet’s rule over Chile. International pressures on the dictator will take shape on the story because as a result a referendum will be held to see how much of the public will keep the current power structure.
The movie seems to balance the heavy dramatic tension of the cruelty inflicted on the populace with bits of genuine humor. “No” has the quality of being a great historical piece with the amount of positive selections from quite a few prestigious film festivals.
Though “No” has debuted earlier this year in some other foreign markets, the movie will come to the U.S. on February 2013.
