Based on a true story, when Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, facing international pressure, calls for a referendum on his presidency in 1988, opposition leaders persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra, to spearhead their campaign. With scant resources and constant scrutiny by the despot’s watchmen, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and free their country from oppression.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The best movie ever made about Chilean plebiscites, No thoroughly deserves its Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film.
Fresh: "No" stands proudly in a select sub-category of historical fiction films that work, completely and satisfyingly, as their own movies.
Fresh: If there are fewer white-knuckle showdowns than in a Hollywood movie, the trade-off is a cool, ironic intelligence that ripples off the screen and up the years to where we live.
Fresh: On every level, "No" leaves one with bittersweet feelings about democracy, love and the cost of compromise.
Fantastic Film on the Media Campaign against the Pinochet dictatorship
After seeing negative ad after negative ad in Politics it's refreshing to see how one positive advertising professional living under the Pinochet dictatorship was able to help bring together one country under the message of positive togetherness.
Really well acted. Very well researched and documented.
This is a great movie and really interesting.
Thank you iTunes.
