  • 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. And despite its high acclaim and the interesting subject, I was not impressed by the picture quality or the bumpy camera work and light flaring affects nor by the actors who seemed unconnected and unemotional.

  • 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. Just treat it as a quasi-documentary meant to educate, to portray the events Wikipedia-style and nothing more.

  • Summary: Come dice a un certo punto Antonio (il personaggio interpretato da Marcial Tagle) dopo aver visto le immagini delle donne di alcuni desaparecidos, ‘io mi sono commosso’. Un po’ perché Augusto Pinochet Ugarte stato uno degli uomini neri della mia generazione, un po’ perché questo film narra, con partecipazione ed efficacia cinematografica, l’incruenta fine della feroce dittatura cilena.

  • 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. If you knew nothing about Chile under Pinochet, this film did little to educate you. I was also disappointed in the low key, nonchalant approach Garcia to his character,. Maybe that was accurate but he was so passive as to be unbelievable to me.

  • 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. There was no doubt, legally or not, that the majority of people would vote ‘yes’.

  • 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 crimes of a dictator). Shot on video tape seen in the 80s, it feels more like a documentary from the time than a film of reflection.

  • 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: This movie is must-see for anyone studying journalism, language or publicity. It shows how the perception a people have from reality is is shaped by media. The movie shows both sides of politics, and both of them can be said to present only true facts. Nevertheless, the interpretation of facts is what will make our perception of "truth".
