Смотреть Здравствуй уважаемый читатель. Возникает желание посмотреть на себя, сопоставить себя с описываемыми событиями и ситуациями, охватить себя другим охватом - во всю даль и ширь души. Удивительно, что автор не делает никаких выводов, он радуется и огорчается, веселится и грустит, загорается и остывает вместе со своими героями. Запутанный сюжет, динамически развивающиеся события и неожиданная развязка, оставят гамму положительных впечатлений от прочитанной книги. Один из немногих примеров того, как умело подобранное место украшает, дополняет и насыщает цветами и красками все произведение. Развязка к удивлению оказалась неожиданной и оставила приятные ощущения в душе.

He and the teams of filmmakers he deploys like a spymaster throughout the country never seem to be in any real danger. There is little in this book that might disturb the tranquility of those who argue that, on balance, the coup and the Pinochet dictatorship were worth enduring because of the relative prosperity and stability, and the return to democratic rule that was its undeniable result.
The filmmaker enters the country convinced of what he will find there, awash with nostalgia and traumatized by the time, twelve years before, when he and his wife and children were forced to flee the country under real pain of death. But now my disquiet gave way to frank disappointment. If anything, armed policemen were more in evidence on the streets of Paris or New York than here. Neither, however, does it come up with first-hand accounts that prove very condemnatory.
Similarly, reports of one of his crews getting arrested turn out to be false; ticket inspectors on the airplane turn out not to be looking for him; even the carabineros policemen of whom he is so obsessively paranoid in the beginning of his trip turn out much more often helpful and sincere than sinister. What to make, for example, of his decision to seek out and provoke two carabineros working on his film site during one of the first shoots in Santiago, therefore making it more likely that they would examine the very false documents about which he was endlessly anxious?
There is the odd compulsion he feels to carry a huge number of packs of Gitanes cigarettes into the country, and his paranoid inability to get rid of any of the used-up packets. One of his most asinine moments comes shortly after his entrance into Chile, when he is beset by a sudden wave of nostalgia and jumps out of the taxi—ignoring the imminent curfew, abandoning his ostensible wife and generally calling both their cover into question; when she gets angry at him upon his return and then the female head of the Italian film crew requires him to go through all their pre-arranged passwords rather than just letting him in because she recognizes his voice, he seems to think her thoroughness threatens his manhood: But with the same rigorousness she was to display every moment of the days to follow, she would not open the door until the password game was complete.
I muttered to myself, thinking not just of Elena but of Ely [his real wife] too. Bizarre, right? It reflects very little on gender roles that one partner in a collaboration would expect to go through the full password exchange as rehearsed, rather than abandoning the plan just because the other person says "Stop screwing around and let me in. To me this brings up quite interesting questions about what it means to "author" a work, since what Garcia Marquez did would more often be referred to as "editing.
All in all, a curiosity, and one that I found compelling albeit for different reasons than I originally assumed.
