metaphor or not?
time for revenge During the four decades since its premiere, it was at times considered a metaphor for repression and a state of violence during the last military dictatorship. According to this view, Bengo’s silence – the character played by Federico Luppi – would symbolize a society that is silent and intimidated by fear.
For its part, the fictional multinational Tulsaco itself would represent the dictatorship, and The imprisonment of the hero in the hotel will refer to the secret kidnapping. These performances, despite their good intentions, have done nothing but detract from the film.
the alleged metaphorical content of time for revenge In fact, it is outside of the work itself, in its interpretation of its interpretations or even in some of Aristar’s statements, but is not tense and exciting in the nearly two hours that the film goes on.
A review suggests that it is at best textual in the classical tradition. The characters have such a polished humanity that they resist any chance to become fanatical. or symbols of nothing.
At the same time, the proven narrative ability of Aristarne, never better taken to the zenith of perfection than here, You don’t need to resort to encrypted keys or hidden meanings for the sake of the world, one morality and one country at one point.

part for whole
time for revenge Obviously, he speaks of dictatorship, fear and subjugation, but he does so in a direct and concrete way. If it were a metaphor, it would speak of an abstract dictatorship, of a country that never existed. The realism of the staging and the concrete references in the various lines of dialogue no doubt indicate which is the actual context.
For example, it is explicitly said that Bengoa is a dynamitor who managed to hide his past as a union leader in order to get a job at a multinational mining company. It is also a mistake to attribute the rhetorical material to Tulsaco, when the subjugation of the employees and the abuse of violence is literally enough to understand what is being talked about.
In any case, we can say that time for revenge is a synonym character: that is, that Wants to describe a part to refer to the whole. Due to forced tactics in the face of censorship, Aristotle refrained, to state a few things, but He didn’t have to lie to do that.

best movie about dictatorship
And in a movie where the characters play out moral issues all the time, Director’s ethical decisions become decisive. Yes time for revenge he was the one bahadur movie It was okay to take charge of what he was saying.
The film’s narrative premise is basic: using Bengoa’s sudden silence as a strategy to fool the Tulsaco company. With his silence, Bengoa not only defies the law, but defeats it.
That silence is the perfect narrative tool for organizing a network of power relations. Between the characters, a means for moral choices to get in the way of each of them.
The film presents themes played for cinema of the time, such as the Ford Falcon that dumps a corpse into the street, or the final dismemberment being the price Bengo would pay for his adventure. a) yes, Time of Revenge stands out as the best film about a dictatorship made during a dictatorship.
