Review
Set against the backdrop of 1970s Chile, under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, escapism and celebrity seem like a perfect world away from depraved reality. For Raul Peralta, a glimmer of hope comes in the form of a local television station's search for the Chilean Tony Manero (John Travolta's seminal role in 'Saturday Night Fever'). A far cry from giving even a glimmer of hope, 'Tony Manero' offers a dark, brutal portrayal of the nature of obsession and an impossibile future for a repressed people. A stark, powerful film.
