Movie Info

Originally Actas De Marusia, this Mexican film re-creates a dark chapter in the history of Chile. The scene is a small Chilean mining town in 1907. Suffering under the despotic rule of the British mine owners, the workers stage a revolt. The government's solution is to utterly destroy the town rather than allow the rebellion to spread. Letters from Marusia was adapted from a novel by Patricio Manns, which in turn was based on eyewitness accounts of the 1907 massacre. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

... having loaded [director Miguel Littin's] film with dynamite, he ends it not with a bang but with a slogan.

December 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Miguel Littín, wanting to be "artistic" and "intellectual," has made a film that lacks even the discreet charm of the Third World cinema he wanted to escape. [Full Review in Spanish]
