Since the movie is shot in Chile, this could very well be a locally built 2cv by IES. They had very large front end bumpers.

Citroen made 2CVs in Chile.

IES was an Argentinian company which was given Citroen's Argentinian factory by the military government after the Falklands War. The junta expropriated French assets in Argentina to punish France for supporting Britain in the war. IES had to give its cars non-Citroen engines, because the engines had been imported and Citroen obviously would not do business with a factory that had been stolen from it.

Slightly better visible in /vehicle_182659-Renault-4.html . Indeed different from European models: bumper (I think it's slightly different from tha Argentina model as well), front indicators, windows in the rear doors are placed further outside (and can be opened), also the third window is placed further outside (like on early Belgian models). The one shown here seems to have a metallic roof, and according to the site mentionned by Gag Halfrunt it is a 1973-1979 model (no trunk) and could be a 1978/79 AX330 (but we'd need to see the rear to confirm).

A view of the rear should clear things, locally built 2cv's had a Dyane-style bootlid. I saw a IES 3CV M.83 in Argentina a few months ago, great to see there are 2cv's even overthere!

Many MISTAKES. Never the goverment expropiated anything related this. And its Malvinas ;)
And the engines, are indeed a CitroŽn engines.
http://www.cocheargentino.com.ar/i/ies.htm see. IES its for Industrias Eduardo Sal Lari, former president of Daher-Boge, and associated with CitroŽn Argentina in the past.
