Set against the fall of the socialist Allende government and the installation of the military junta in 1973 Chile, this delicate coming-of-age tale sees two very different boys - one from the privileged suburbs, the other a slum-dweller from a shantytown – become classmates and grow closer, until eventually their friendship is threatened by the intractable forces of revolution - and the rather more complex allure of their classmate Silvana.

Very authentic story about the social gap in 1973 Chile, symbolized by the friendship of two very different boys. Strong emphasis on social frictions and political strives.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
