#724. The Official Story (1985)
Why It's In The Book: "Made in 1985, just after the collapse of military rule, Luis Puenzo's film is a brave attempt to face uncomfortable truths." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Movie Guy Steve - 9/10
"La Historia Oficial plays something like a movie of the week were it not for the seriousness of the story."
Univarn - 9/10
"While it may be operatic at times, The Official Story is a powerful tale of human emotion, and discovery. As these characters are pushed to their breaking points, we are absorbed into their world. The most gripping, and emotionally relatable of worlds: one that is real."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"This is just a good, well done film, and unless you know or are interested in Argentinian politics, you really don’t need to ask of this any more than that."
El Gringo - 8/10
"Gaby not only serves as the center of this story but also as a reminder of the uncountable abducted, tortured, and murdered Argentine citizens from this time."
Klaus Ming - 8/10
"The Official Story is a highly emotional fictionalized dramatic account of a woman living in Buenos Aires who comes to the realization that her adopted daughter is likely the child of a disappeared victim of the military takeover of Argentina during the late 1970s."
Whitney - 8/10
"It's not a movie I would necessarily recommend jumping into without some previous knowledge of Argentinean politics, but let's just pretend you're as globally uninformed as I am, you won't have a problem following along on an emotional level rather than a political one."
Robert - 8/10
"Even with all the movie does right, I didn't fall in love with it, in large part due to my ignorance of the historical context."
This Guy Over Here - 6/10
"An incredibly well-made and perhaps important film that seems easily dismissible by audiences who aren't immediately effected by the country's history."
alfindeol - 5/10
"Between the Jew fros and the fashion, the 80's hit Argentina hard."
