On CBC I heard about the writer and producer of this movie. Even though the movie is old, I remember the actual events. Of course, we were kept in the dark re: involvement of USA at the time. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie

As a young American who was not even born in the time when the actions in this film were taking place, this movie was one of my first real interactions with the subject matter. The performances of Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek take the audience on their characters' personal journeys which is a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss. It is a striking look at just what the American government may have been up to to try and protect its own interests. Costa-Gavras does a great job of showing the audience just what other possibilities exist and how you can't necessarily believe everything the government tells you.

Seeing this movie gives you a pretty good heads-up on what went on in Chile under Pinochet. Unfortunately, so many today who think of it as left-wing propaganda are the brain-washed ones. The U.S. government was involved in so many coups in developing countries and countries that were kept at a developing level intentionally. To say that this film is propaganda insults all of those who died anonymously during that horrible regime and many more like it.
A definite must-see.

My husband was born in Chile and his family moved to the US in 1975. His father was held for 3 years in one of the concentration camps. His mother made the children sleep under the beds out of fear from the soldiers. His father was one of the lucky ones to survive, not without the emotional scars to show for it. They have watched this movie and my husband and I own it. His parents have seen it only once, saying that they lived it, and can't bear to relive it. This movie is very real, and those things really happened. If you are at all interested in Chilean history, or civil rights, or if you are in the mood for an incredible movie, I highly suggest this film.

I have looked at the cover of this video many times and then put it down again-not being very interested in South American history. It just so happens that I'm taking a class in South American history (!) and we watched the film this week. If you want to know what a 'military coup' is...this film does an excellent job of illustrating just that. It is absolutely terrifying. And the fact that it was U.S. backed has simply outraged me. Richard Nixon's administration was so corrupt. Henry Kissinger had knowledge of this torture and allowed it to happen. I can understand why he's afraid to leave the country. He could easily be charged with war crimes against humanity. This is not an easy film to watch, but for over a decade, this is how Chile existed.

Constantin Costa-Gavros is one of my favorite directors and film makers. In 1982 he crossed into the main stream with the Hollywood backed "Missing." This is a film about the military coup, led by General Agusto Pinochet, and the violent overthrow of Chile's democratically elected President Salvador Allende's Popular Unity Government in 1973. The U.S. government, and the CIA, assisted the Chilean military in the coup. This is a terrible tale of the torture and murder of innocents, and the personal, true story of one of them, U.S. citizen Charles Horman. Horman was a gentle, kind young man with a love of writing and the arts.
Charles and his wife Beth, movingly portrayed by Sissy Spacek, were living in Chile, as were many foreigners at that time, to learn about the new socialist coalition government that had come together under Allende. There was much excitement and idealism in the air. Horman, after witnessing US government military and CIA officials in Valparaiso, Chile, was driven back to Santiago by an American stranger, during the first hours of the coup. He disappeared shortly after his return home. Not one member of his family, or his friends saw him alive again.
Charles Horman's father, brilliantly played by Jack Lemmon, traveled to Santiago immediately, and he and Beth began a long, terrifying and unrewarding search for the disappeared young man. Mr. Horman was very conservative politically, and disapproved of Charles' and Beth's move to Chile. He was a patriotic American who believed that the US government would certainly help him find his son. He slowly began to acknowledge the truth, with Beth leading the way, about the US Embassy's cover-ups and lies.

This award winner movie is a masterpiece.It is the ture story of Charles Horman,US citizen, who disappeared days after a bloody coup d'etat in Chile during septemeber of 1973. Soon his wife realice that he has been arrested by the Chilean military.WIth charles's father they search for him in everywhere with the apparent help of the US officials working at the US embassy. The reality that they encounter on their search for charles reveals the cruelty of the militar dictatorship and the political game of manipulation that begun with the search for Charles.
Althought at the begining of the movie there is a warning saying that some names had been changed to protect the movie, the movie does a magnificent work to use names that are really close aproximation to the real ones. The movie also does a good job selecting the locations, the places certainly have similar characteristics to those that you could find in Chile back then, this gives the movie an authenticity flavor.Because this movie gives a loyal accounts of the facts it deserves five stars.
