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 Guar
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 Pino ...more

Bu yazının orijinali CAN'la Bir Sene'de yayınlandı.

Şili'de Gizlice, 1985 yılı başlarında memleketine girebilmek, askeri diktatörlükle yönetilen ülkesinin içinde bulunduğu durumu ortaya koyacak bir film çekmek için kılık ve kimlik değiştirerek Şili'de altı hafta geçiren yönetmen Migüel Littin'in hikayesi. 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 yine aynı heyecanla okunurdu bu anlatı

Recommends it for: filmmakers and Chile-ophiles.
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

من الوهلةِ الأولى بالنظر لعنوان الكتابِ خمنتُ أنني سأرى رحلةَ مغامرٍ مطعمة بألبومِ صور، ولكن الذي حصلَ أنني لم أجد ذلك؛ فتعبير ماركيز جعلَ للكلمات تأثيرا يفوقُ الصور، فهو يقص الأحداثَ وكأنها صور حيةٌ تتحرك.
هذه المخاطرة جعلتني متوترا مضطربا فهي رحلةٌ محفوفة بالمخاطر،متشوقا للمرحلةِ القادمة، حتى وعندما انتهت كنت أتسائل عن مصيرِ الفيلمِ المصور إلى أن ذكر في الصفحة الأخيرة ما آل إليه أمره.
الكتاب يحكي مغامرةً، وتحد جسورِ الدكتاتورية، بهيئة تنكريةٍ دخل تشيلي بالتعاون مع فرق تصوير إيطالية وهولندية وفرن

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, continuando a senti ...more
في هذه القصة يتحدث ماركيز عن العملية الجريئة المحفوفة بالمخاطر التي قام بها المخرج التشيلي المنفي خارج وطنه "ميغيل ليتين" الذي اضطر لتغيير شكله وطريقة حديثه واستخدام الوثائق المزورة كي يعود إلى وطنه بشكل سري ويصور فيلمًا وثائقيًا عن ظروف تشيلي في حكم الديكتاتور بينوشيت.
اضطر ماركيز إلى ضغط حوالي 600 صفحة في اقل من 150صفحة،وهذا بكل تأكيد له تأثير سلبي كبير على جماليات هذه القصة التي لا ترتقي لأعمال ماركيز الخالدة بالرغم من إعجابي ببعض الأحداث في القصة والحديث عن حب الشعب التشيلي لرئيسهم السابق سلف

هذا ماجنيت بسبب تاخر الطبيبة وانا في الانتظار ، قررت ان الهي نفسي بهذه الاقصوصة البسيطة التي تحكي بقلم جابرييل مغامرة المخرج التشيلي ميغيل ليتن المنفي من بلده الواقعه تحت حكم الدكتاتور بيونشت ،وهو الحكم الذي خلف سلفادور اليندي الاسطورة الشعبية التشيلية الذي يتوق الناس الى عودة عهده الديموقراطي والتي ذكراه لم يتخل عنها الناس جيلا بعد جيل رغم كل شيء
أولا كانت رغبة ميغيل ستنطفئ لولا ان صرح عن رغبته في مناسبة سينمائية ليحصل الامر سريعاا ولكأنه حلم ولكي يتحقق كان الاستعدادات كبيرة وان كانت تتطلب تغيي
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

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 ...more

كان معاناة التشيليين تشبه معاناة كل من يحكمون بقوة السلاح ,

من مغامرات اقتصادية فاشلة من الحكومة و التي تضيع فيها أموال الشعب ,

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 save i
The narrative is interesting and the prose exceptional. The introduction however is poor. In contrast to the lively and descriptive scenes of a decaying fascist dictatorship about to crumble, Francisco Goldman weighs himself down with ill-concealed attempts at trying to drag the names of Gabriel García Márquez and Miguel Littín through the dirt. This makes him come across as a total nob. He's some kind of bigwig journalist so, to be fair, he probably is. He seems to be trying to belittle the fil ...more
Este libro es el testimonio descarnado de una persona que sufrió el exilio en carne propia, y nos hace ver, más allá del propósito inicial de filmar la situación y las relaciones consuetudinarias de aquel entonces en Chile, cómo es el hecho aciago de sentirte fuera de tu tierra, y no poder realizar, hacer, o sentir cosas que son genuinas de uno por haber nacido en ese sitio, así como también perderse de las cosas que pasaron. Nos hace sentir empatía sobre el ser exiliado en una manera más profun ...more

In the past, I tried to read Gabriel García Márquez's novel "100 Years of Solitude" several times, but unfortunately never got into it. The Chile book was an accidental find in a free book shelf. It is a modern reportage: Littin is a film-maker, and exiled from Chile, but returned there illegally to create a film. In a different kind of "making of" story, Marquez spent several days, talking with Littín to "hear the story of his escapade, with all its scary, comic, and not-a-little surreal ups an ...more

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 ...more
Not, of course, anovel, just a journalistic report, or investigation on the Director Miguel littin and his dangerous journey&adventure to expose the defects and violations of the dictatorship,and oppressing ruling regime of the "US,Always US" Supported-military coup of Augusto Pinochet...
The sacrifices & the heroic struggling of peoples against their tyrants, should be celebrated &remembered, that's simply what Marquez trying to settle through his narrtion of such abrave adventure...
I've always liked Garcia Marquez's reportage works....this is no exception, but I still prefer "Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor" over this one.

La sutileza con que Narra Marquez, te pierde. Muy bueno.
Não foi o primeiro livro que li deste autor, mas foi o primeiro deste género. 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 antigamente. ...more
I enjoyed this book primarily because I have lived in Chile for five years, including in the two cities most described in this book, so I could recognize placenames and imagine how they have and haven't changed based on Littín-via-Márquez's descriptions of the place. The book also contains lovely passages based on the author's change of identity, reunion with his mother, and comradery with his political companions. There's even some madcap humor considering some mishaps being "Clandestine in Chi ...more

As pointed out in his own synopsis, this book is not a traditional novel but a historical reconstruction of the clandestine operation that Michael Litín carried out in his native Chile, to make a movie, during the dictatorship period of Augusto Pinochet.
For those, like me, unaware of the recent history of Chile, this book turns out to be an excellent documentary, which portrays the difficulties of the chilean people after the coup d'etat carried out by the military, lefting Augusto Pinochet in t
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, famous for his books, 'A Hundred Years of Solitude' and 'Love in the time of Cholera' puts on his journalistic hat again, and produced this summary of 18 hours of interview with Miguel Littín, a famous Chilean film director who had returned to Chile during Pinochet's regime of terror to film the condition of the country and the effects on the people. Miguel Littín had fled Chile after Pinochet toppled Allende in the coup and remained in exile, being on Pinochet's list of ...more
Truth be told, I've never read Marquez before, not 100 Years of Solitude, not Love in the Time of Cholera, nothing. I've always wanted to, of course, because anyone who reads always has a pile of books and authors they will read one day, however, Marquez has always slipped out of my reach for some reason.

This book came to me by accident at the library when I was looking for something else; out slipped this thin little book from the shelf from between 2 large tomes on South American and Spanish

Devo em 1º lugar dizer que Miguel Littín foi muito digno no trabalho que realizou. Foi importante não só para si a nível pessoal, mas essencialmente para os seus compatriotas e para o mundo ao desafiar e transparecer a violência de uma ditadura como a de Pinochet, muito agressiva e sangrenta.

Em 2º lugar, dizer que o Gabriel García Márquez fez um bom trabalho ao trazer este acontecimento para a escrita.

Assumindo-se como uma reportagem denunciadora da situação social e política do Chile no períod

This was a quick and interesting read. Chile, overthrown by Pinochet and his military thugs backed by the US on September 11, 1973, has been of interest to me since the September 11 that happened in the US. I remember reading a book called "Other September 11ths" or something to that effect by Ariel Dorfman.

A friend recommended Marquez so I picked some up and this was one of the books. As I mention above, Chile has been of interest to me so I decided to read this book. It's about Miguel Littin,
Isabel Maia
Gabriel García Márquez pegou no relato real de Miguel Littín, um realizador chileno, e escreveu este livro em forma de reportagem. Littín é, como disse, um realizador chileno e um opositor ao regime de Augusto Pinochet, facto que o fez exilar-se e lhe valeu a proibição de entrada no país. Com o objectivo de filmar a realidade do Chile sob a alçada de Pinochet, Littín assume a personagem de um burguês uruguaio que tem como objectivo filmar um spot publicitário usando imagens do país. São montadas ...more
This is the story of how a truly underground film was made. Twelve years into the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, Miguel Litten, whom the elected President, Salvador Allende, had appointed to head Chile Film, entered the country to make a documentary film. He might have been executed in 1973, but for a film buff who let him flee.

Had I not known who wrote this book, I'd never have guessed from the text. Garcia Marquez, writing from his 18 hours of interviews with Litten, successfully uses the f
