Neruda, GFT, 7 – 13 April, 2017.




7 – 13 April, 2017


Described by prolific director Pablo Larraín (The Club, Jackie) as “more of a ‘Nerudian’ film than it is a film about Neruda”; this latest provocative work weaves an exuberantly irreverent fantasy around events in the life of the poet and politician. In the early days of the Cold War, as Chile aligned itself with America, Neruda’s communist convictions saw him branded an enemy of the state and he was obliged to go into hiding. Gormless police inspector Oscar Peluchonneau (Gael Garcia Bernal) is soon on the case in a playful, fantastic-looking film that is as entertainingly constructed as it is surprisingly illuminating.

    Pablo Larrain follows up No and The Club with an unlikely, often surreal and incredibly entertaining film that plays fast and loose with facts and time.
