A near-perfect homage to a literary giant” –Globe and Mail

When Chile’s acclaimed poet and leftist Senator Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) is charged with treason, he goes into hiding, with an obsessive, would-be literary critic and somewhat inept detective (Gael Garcia Bernal) on his tail. Director Pablo Larraín (TONY MANERO, NO) turns history into a funhouse, with echoes of Brecht, Bolaño and Borges, celebrating the unreality of fiction while critiquing the stark reality of political oppression.
