19 September 2015 | pablo-freudenthal
an important historical portrait of military repression in the 20th century
Olvidados is worth seeing if you wish to reflect and educate yourself about the state of repression in the context of 20th century dictatorships in Latin America. I believe that most importantly, the film achieves to portray this problem as a regional problem, reflecting how our nations share an important historical burden.

the display of violent images and military abuse make the viewer reflect on the state of democracy and freedom of press, which are issues far from being resolved in the region today.

The beautiful imagery in several locations (La Paz and Santiago among others) and the showcase of personal relations shown in the film aid to an identification with the figures.

Admittedly, the plot is somewhat simple and the acting is not amazing. But then again, that does not seem to be the main focus of the film.
