Estamos bien en el refugio, los 33

No spoilers here: everyone knows how this story turns out, and yes Piñera did yell out "Viva Chile, MIERDA!" when the first miner came out.

This was a daily drama played out before our eyes by way of CHV, TVN, Mega, Canal13 and La Red - the national television networks in Chile where Amaro Gomez-Pablos gave us reports of the progress made by Golborne and his team.

Laurence Golborne shot to universal recognition, a good looking (his movie counterpart appears to be taller and thinner) well spoken 49 year old at the time. Now he's had his share of scandal and has slipped from the public eye.

Many parts of this film are pure drama and have nothing to do with the actual events. There is a mish-mash of accents. The opening sequences are cringeworthy for a chilean audience, to hear Maria selling her empanadas on the street: "cheese, chicken, pino and meat." I've lived in this country for 25 years: I've never had a chicken empanada. Also, "pino" is meat. It doesn't make sense. I think I'll enter in a goof about that.

The end product, the wonky accents aside and a few errors about food, was enjoyable for me, but I was very emotional about it. I had to blow my nose several times and blot my eyes.

Give it a shot, I think you might like it.

Oh, just one last thing: Mario Kreuzberger's appearance as Don Francisco is extremely authentic.

"Deep Down Dark"

In this true-life story, the title relates to the number of miners trapped in a copper mine in Chile, in 2010. It's a compelling premise. We feel for the miners in their small, claustrophobic hole some two thousand feet below the surface. And we empathize with anxious family and friends above ground who desperately want the men rescued.

Based on the follow-up book "Deep Down Dark", the script has some problems. Characterization is minimal. Barely twenty minutes in, the mine's collapse supersedes characterization. If you're not familiar with the people by then, too bad; miners and their family members tend to take on a stick figure quality, one character pretty much blends in with some other character.

English dialogue in a Spanish speaking country comes across as unrealistic. But much worse is the stilted, contrived nature of the chat; overwrought drama, anguish, arguing, and outward display of emotions reek of Hollywood talking, not the people who experienced this event. Despite the overly Hollywood feel to the script, the final twenty minutes are compelling and inspiring.

Casting and acting are generally acceptable, except for the presence of Antonio Banderas in the lead role. As happens so often, Hollywood inserts big name actors into lead roles, which accentuates the Hollywood feel of a film, rendering the movie contrived. I would have preferred a lesser known actor.

Background music consists of Spanish songs, which is nice. Color cinematography does a nice job in a low-light environment. Some segments in Act II could have been excised or shortened, as they either slow down the plot or they convey the impression of filler.

The main reason to see this film is because of its real-life premise. The event really happened. How that event was handled by different characters, and the emotions it evoked during a span of many days is what gives the film its potency, a flawed movie script notwithstanding.

Outstanding movie (feel good, funny, dramatic)

This is actually a VERY good movie. I am not sure how accurate it is, but it does tell the story very well. There are no surprises, since most people remember when this happened. It just tells a story of survival. It is well acted, well directed, and the story (I think) is pretty accurate, at least from what I remember from when it happened. If you have not seen this movie, I would highly recommend it.
