Excerpt: Apart from the movie which is a very good one and well written, but I would love to comment to the last reviewer about what is important to know about the picture quality of the movie itself: "No" was intended to be shot on a quality of television from 1980's, giving the true experience of...
Summary: I am quite surprised that a movie about such a dramatic moment in the history of Chile could not convey the need for change, empathy and anxiety about what may happen to the ones involved or the actual link between the campaign and the result.
Excerpt: The format is 4:3. The video is about as good as a VHS tape. The movie is well written and acted and the story should get high marks but this should not get any kind of good rating for video quality. As a Blu-ray disc the video quality should be pristine, despite the directors artistic license.
Summary: It's slow, it's dry, it's deliberately ugly, and you know how the story will end. If you grab some popcorn and expect to be entertained, No will bore you to death, but if you have any interest in the mechanisms of democracy, marketing, and the ways they intersect, the film won't disappoint you.
Summary: For a historical drama about a brutal dictator, this film sure lacked suspense or a sense of the terror that Pinochet was. Maybe that was the essence of the "NO" campaign but it surely was not was the dictatorship represented.
Summary: After 15 years of a dictatorship Chilean Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, was allowing the people to vote in an upcoming plebiscite, an expression of the people’s will, as to whether they favored, voting ‘yes’ or not, voting ‘no’ as to if Pinchot should remain in office.
Summary: This is a good film about a people who are given a sliver of an opportunity to attempt a task with impossible odds (overthrowing a dictator via an election) with impossible goals (getting every political party to agree on a tactic of fun advertising counter to the instinct of exposing the horrible...
Summary: Gael Garcia Bernal is the only pro of the entire flick. The movie has a good premise, and a strong story, but at the begining of the second act starts to fall apart, and the characters feels less and less important. At the end the movie is a mess.
Summary: This movie blew me away! It's like the others in the trilogy in that it is straight facts and stories told from the people themselves. It shows how messed up the media is and how it warps peoples minds. A pretty great film overall.
Summary: Interesting movie, about an important event in the history of democracy, it shows the heroes beside the tv, politicians, etc, with this movie we can learn the power of communication of the journalism, deserve an Oscar you must see
