Read Gary Duncan's film review of The Official Story

The sound is okay but the picture quality could have been a bit sharper. The subtitles are on the small side and the yellow text is sometimes difficult to read on a light background.

The extras cry out for a documentary concerning the real-life political events that shape the film. I'd liked to have known a bit more about the corrupt junta responsible for kidnapping and torturing political prisoners and a backgrounder on the "families of the missing" would have added even more poignancy to an already moving film.
