Some years have passed since I first read the story of this wonderful man in William Blum's book 'Rogue State'. A book that led me to so many historic events which were opposite to what the media and it's puppeteers were telling us.
He was the predecessor to Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Lula of Brazil, Evo Morales of Bolivia, the Kirchners of Argentina and other new leaders of Latin America who are looking after their own economies without being indebted to the IMF or World Bank, who with their crippling interest rates have broken the lives of citizens and bankrupted entire countries, ie Spain, Ireland and Greece.
This documentary I found enlightening and I was most impressed to see so much original footage. Anyone who truly wants to reach back into the history of Latin America should read 'Open Veins of Latin America'; this along with Neruda's poems are the only books Isabel Allende, niece of Salvador took with her wrapped in her baby's nappies, in the one suitcase she was allowed to escape with that terrifying day when her uncle died - 11th of September 1973 [9/11/73]
The DVD arrived safely and was well wrapped as have been all the books and DVDs I have bought from amazon.

This is an amazing documentary that does full justice to Allende. Using historical footage fascinating interviews and Guzman/s own voiceover it's incredibly well put together. A compelling film.

While the documentary was riviting for me (a fluent Spanish speaker), my husband was unable to enjoy it as he doesn't speak Spanish. We tried in vain for fifteen minutes to have the English subtitles displayed. The packaging said the DVD featured a subtitle option but we were unable to get them working.

Watch it! Best video source for a left view of Allende, helps to give a balanced approach without surrendering to the other side.

I have been unable to locate a DVD of Salvador Allende so was very excited to find it on Amazon. However, as was the case with the previous reviewer, I could not get the English subtitles to work. On closer inspection, I figured out that the subtitles mentioned on the DVD package refer to a few brief moments in the film which feature Spanish subtitles to translate English conversation. Very misleading! And disappointing since I do not speak Spanish.
