Chico | Chicago Reader


Eduardo Rozsa Flores plays the title role, the child of a communist revolutionary, who grows up to be a soldier, a journalist, and finally a guerrilla fighter for the far right in Croatia. Directed by Hungarian Ibolya Fekete, this 2001 Chilean-European coproduction speeds from one revolutionary battle zone to another, showing desperate lives everywhere from Chile to Israel to Albania to Hungary to Croatia. Part fiction and part documentary, the story is moving even when jumps in time and space leave it rather opaque; the hero's search for moral and ideological certainty in a blurry world offers a challenging meditation on war and political collapse around the globe. In English and subtitled Hungarian and Spanish. 108 min.
