Film Series: Neruda

2016. Chile/Argentina. Dir: Pablo Larraín. With Gael García Bernal. 107 min.


Pursued by a fascist inspector for his public denunciations of the President, the Chilean Communist poet goes un- derground while leaving teasing traces to his whereabouts. Larraín’s buoyantly floating shots reimagine the Jean Valjean and the Javert of this lasting chase, as each of them find themselves inevitably drawn to the opposite advocacy.
