Andrés Wood’s film examines the events leading up to the September 1973 military coup in Chile through the eyes of a soft, sensitive 11-year-old boy named Gonzalo, who comes from a rich, unhappy Santiago family and attends an exclusive private school. There, he meets Pedro Machuca, one of a number of poor boys granted scholarsips by the headmaster, a priest flush with the egalitarian spirit of the times. The friendship of the two boys — whose frequent companion is Silvana, a spritied girl from the shantytown where Pedro lives — develops as the country slides into political turmoil. Mr. Wood, who based "Machuca" on events from his own childhood, hews closely to Gonzalo’s point of view, and in spite of a few schematic, overdone scenes, the movie is subtle, quiet and forceful. — A. O. Scott, The New York Times

Чили, 1976 год. Политическая и социальная обстановка в Чили стремительно ухудшается. В Сантьяго де Чили по инициативе отца Макенро открывается католическая школа, в которой должны будут учиться жить вместе во взаимном уважении дети из разных социальных слоев и семей разного достатка, такие, как одиннадцатилетние Гонзало Инфанте, мальчик из обеспеченной семьи, и Педро Мачука — крестьянский сын, живущий в трущобах.

a nice glimpse of some Chilean history from the 70's as the military with CIA backing overthrew the democratically elected government. It's the story of two boys from different social classes and their friendship in this time of political unrest.

Includes an interesting scene where Silvana is making out with a boy, when her brother who's been watching them wants to try kissing - so she snogs with him too! ;)
