Based on real life events when a gold and copper mine collapses and traps 33 miners underground for 69 days. Starring Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, and Juliette Binoche.
This film is based on the true events of the 33 miners as they trapped below ground for days. The story does a wonderful job at telling both sides – we follow the families and the miners as we attempts are made to save them. The film keeps you in suspense worrying about each of the miners, while their families struggle with the life above ground. The real thirty-three miners were consultants on the film, and when the credits rolled all 33 made an appearance. This film has it’s poor moments of cinema, but it’s still worth a watch.
