      Δεν είναι ο συνηθισμένος Marquez. Μια σύντομη και άνοστη, μάλλον, εξομολόγηση που μετατράπηκε από το συγγραφέα σε μια απλώς καλογραμμενη νουβέλα! Τίποτα το ιδιαίτερο!

      There is a brilliant and touching preface by Francisco Goldman that I highly recommend. The book itself, however, is dull. Returning to Pinochet's Chile to produce a clandestine film about the horrors of the dictatorship. the narrator, Miguel Littín, is horrified to learn that Pinochet's Chile (in 1985) was essentially calm (if slightly bullied) and prosperous modern country -- even during the State of Siege.Having been in Spain during the Franco years, I can attest that the presence of the Gua [...]

      Michel Littin, director Chilean stage, became persona non grata in his country upon arrival at Pinochet's power. After 12 years of exile, he decided to return clandestinely under another name and another personality to achieve, with three teams of European filmmakers, a documentary on Chile under the dictatorship. These three teams each ignore the presence and role of the other two and their work will be completed by amateur filmmakers resistance. The shooting of this film (32,000 meters of film [...]

      In the introduction to the NYRB edition of Gabriel Garcia Márquez's Clandestine in Chile, Francesco Goldman makes the claim that the book is most rewarding when read, not as the tale of adventure and political intrigue it seems at first glance, but instead as a study of the times (1985), the place (Chile), and the specific person: Miguel Littín, exiled middle-aged film-director who returns to his native country disguised as a Uruguayan businessman, to film a documentary about life under the Pi [...]

Marquez, Şili'de Gizlice'yi Littin ile gerçekleştirdiği, teypte 18 saat, kağıt üzerinde ise 600 sayfa olan röportajdan derlemiş. Ki bence 600 sayfa olsa da yin [...]

      This is a short but fascinating true story of a film director from Chile, exiled after the Pinochet coup, who sneaks back into the country after 12 years in order to do a documentary about the state of the nation. Despite its factual nature, Garcia Marquez narrates the book in a dramatic first person style and it is a distillation of an 18-hour interview he did with the filmmaker.Oddly, nowhere in the book is there mention of the name of the film that Littin produced from the 105 thousand feet o [...]

      Continuo a adorar o modo que García Márquez nos transporta para as suas histórias. Neste livro tive a sensação de estar dentro do comboio, observando cada pormenor da paisagem social e política da história. O que não me agradou foi, na minha opinião, não existe uma personagem que se destaque e falto um pouco do realismo mágico que caracteriza tanto as suas obras. O que mais gostei desta pequena história foi por mostrar ser actua nos dias de hoje. Representa a realidade dos exilados, [...]

      Darbe öncesi ve sonrası da harika aktarılmıştı. İki dönem arasındaki farkı anlamamız çok güzel sağlanmıştı. Yazarın, kahramanın diliyle seslenmesinin çok büyük etkisi olduğunu düşünüyorum bu noktalarda. Sanki yaşadıklarını Littin bize doğrudan anlatıyormuş havası vardı kitapta ve aslında sayfalar bir sohbet havasında geçiyordu benim açımdan. Etkili öyküler, anektotlarla anlatım daha da zenginleşmiş, kendini yeri geldiğinde tazelemişti bence. Yorumu [...]

      Doğu Avrupa'da Yolculuk'tan sonra etkilenerek okuduğum bir Gabriel García Márquez eseri. Miguel Littin'in serüvenini roman tadında size sunan bir anlatı. Sürgün sonrası ülkesine farklı bir kimlikle giren yönetmenin, darbe sonrası ülkesindeki dikta rejimini ve uygulamalarını gözler önüne sermek adına yaşadğı serüvene ortak oluyorsunuz. Bir solukta okunan eserlerden biri kesinlike. Kitaptan yapmak istediğim tek alıntı sanırım bu olacak; Aşk, veba günlerinde çiçek [...]

      Miguel Littín é um dos mais conceituados realizadores chilenos e que, por ser apoiante declarado de Salvador Allende, viveu exilado durante os anos da ditadura de Pinochet. Em 1985, após 12 anos no exílio, Miguel Littín, entrou clandestinamente no Chile, onde permaneceu seis semanas, durante as quais filmou o documentário "Acta General de Chile". Uma reportagem emocionada de um regresso à muito desejado e não satisfeito na totalidade por não poder ser ele próprio no seu país, continua [...]

      A very readable story of an exiled filmmaker sneaking around Pinochet's Chile to record film for a documentary. The story is almost silly, reminding me of "American Hustle," the Amy Adams/Christian Bale movie about two-bit conartists engaged in a farcical FBI sting. I'm reading up on Chile in advance of a residency in June, and as research, it's good reading, and fast. It's also interesting journalism, as Marques taped 18 hours of interviews with Littin and then consolidated his words down into [...]

      In 1973, Salvador Allende's government collapsed under the weight of a military coup orchestrated by the U.S. and Augusto Pinochet came to power. Immediately on the heels of this coup, any dissidence (or perceived dissidence) was violently repressed, leaving thousands of people dead, imprisoned or just gone without a trace, and the repression went on over the period of Pinochet's reign. Thousands more went into exile to escape this regime and were forbidden to recross the Chilean borders. In 198 [...]

      A most wonderful Marquezian adventure:Clandestine in Chile is Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 1986 telling of film maker Miguel Littín’s covert operation in Chile to record day to day life under Pinochet. Although Marquez is best known for his fiction, which cannot be beaten, it is important to remember that he was first and foremost a journalist. To him, journalism was another form of literature, and he always stood by his conviction that “the world is such a mess that only good journalists can [...]

Distando enormemente do tipo de livros que tenho lido ultimamente, foi refrescante percorrer este livro-documentário. O cunho literário que o autor conferiu a este relato da aventura clandestina do protagonista, dá-lhe uma fluidez e um encanto que poucos livros deste género atingem. Foi com enorme interesse e emoção que com o protagonista fui levada ao Chile que Littín encontrou na sua viagem e ao Chile de ant [...]

      Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, is an odd book for Marquez. It's a straight adventure story, and is a first person account of the adventures of Miguel Littin, an exiled Chilean film director. Littin was a supporter of Allende, and was almost killed as a sympathizer when Agusto Pinochet became dictator after a coup d'etat.As someone else said, this book is "a scary, exhilarating and sometimes hilarious tale of bizarre coincidences, hairbreadth esc [...]

      This is the story of Miguel Littin who was on Pinochet's list of undesirables, but managed to sneak back into the country and manage three film crews to record a documentary "Alsino and the Condor" which won a 1983 Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film. Gabriel Garcia Marquez gives amazing details of the character of the country during this time. He discusses what happened after the coup to Pablo Neruda's house in Santiago. The house was sacked by Pinochet's soldiers and they threw all [...]
