NERUDA re-teams Larrain with Gael Garcia Bernal, with whom he worked on 2012’s NO.
Bernal plays a determined police inspector searching for Chilean politician/Nobel-prize-winning-poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) after he goes into hiding in 1948. NERUDA is no run of the mill biopic.
This is a wildly inventive, poetic, often hilarious, and cinematically daring exploration of the blending of history, fiction, and identity. The first half of the film sets the historical and character stage. The second half soars off in a whole new direction, establishing NERUDA as one of the most unique offerings of the last several years.
