    Raul Ruiz left Chile for Paris shortly after Augusto Pinochet´s military coup in 1974. He started to make [#i_]Dialogues of the Exiles [_i#]loosely based on Bertolt Brecht’s play 「Dialogues of the Exiles」 in less than a month after his arrival in Paris. The film unfolds around the kidnapping case of a Chilean musician. But its main theme is not the kidnapping case but the fate of exiles. Ruiz makes real exiles appear in it. The performances from a well-cast ensemble represent the identity of nervously floating exiles. The scenes, making the poetic impression while maintaining the credibility of documentary, present the decisive and understated quality of the low-budget film. The sincere description of the life in exile deeply touches us with semi-documentary style realistic, improvisatory and unpredictable, unpleasant. [JANG Byungwon]

In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again.
