Many years ago, The Flying Hollander Joris Ivens left a beautiful record about the Chilean port city of Valparaiso(). The Chilean director Jose Luis Torres Leiva´s is like a silent protest against Ivens´ exoticism that was without ill intentions. Close to being a personal sketch rather than a documentary, the film is set in La Martiz, the living quarters of the working class people in Valparaiso. The strange subtitle of "Notes on a Documentary about Fiction" and Lumiere Brothers´ shown in the opening scenes are sort of like a guide suggesting what kind of a film this is. In other words, this film is trying to revive the actuality that was held in the images of the ´first moment´ while thinking again about the films of origin made by Lumiere Brothers. On that note, it can be said that Leiva is following carefully after the footsteps of the most creative auteurs of contemporary modern cinema. The introduction of sliding into the scenery of La Martiz slowly with the musical melody played by musicians in rehearsal makes one think of the film like Jean Luc Godard´s . Eventually, the film begins its walk toward various places, objects, and people in Valparaiso riding on its own rhythm.
