NERUDA

RETURN
Nominated for the 2017 Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Motion Picture. Chilean auteur Pablo Larraín follows 'Jackie' and the 'The Club' with this surreal and highly stylised account of an event in the life of the acclaimed poet-politician Pablo Neruda. It’s 1948. Pablo Neruda is the most famous communist in post-WWII Chile. But when the political tides shift, he is forced underground with a perseverant police inspector, Oscar Peluchonneau, hot on his trail. Now a fugitive, Neruda writes his epic collection of poems, “Canto General” inspired by his life in exile. Meanwhile, in Europe, the legend of the poet hounded by the policeman grows, and artists led by Pablo Picasso clamour for Neruda’s freedom. Gael García Bernal is on excellent form as the fictional detective pursuing Pablo Neruda, but who is haunted by feelings of inadequacy, while Luis Gnecco has fun portraying the Novel Laureate as an egomaniacal hedonist. ★★★★ "Dizzily constructed and full of more life and meaning than most “real” biopics, it’s a risk worth taking" – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian ★★★★ “A determinedly playful, magical realist-style yarn” – Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★ “Elegant, intimate and always playful” – Phil de Semlyen, Empire ★★★★ “A wickedly sumptuous film” – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
