A subtle, precise examination of Chile buckling under the Pinochet regime.

Chile in the 1970s and a series of calamitous events are kick started when burlesque dancer Nancy Puelmas is fired by her cantankerous boss before becoming trapped in a protest march. Like Larrain’s previous film, Tony Manero and featuring the same lead actor-the highly controlled, rigourously elegant framing gels beautifully with the handheld photography to generate a visual tone at once formally compelling and convincingly realistic.
