  • Reception

    Dialogues of Exiles ultimately caused Ruiz to be ostracized from the Chilean exile community because of its critical, at times even unfriendly portrayal of them. Ruizʼs depiction of the exiles is laced with scathing humor, and many complained that he had made light of “los problemas de adaptación, de lenguaje, de espacio, de integración, de choque cultural” [the problems of adaptation, language, space, integration, and cultural shock], which for many were quite serious (“Diálogos”). He nevertheless continued to explore issues of Chilean identity, dictatorship, and exile in his films.
