Chile – Drama – 107 minutes – MA15+

Directed by Pablo Larrain (who recently directed his first English language feature Jackie about Jackie Kennedy), Neruda is a biographical drama about the popular poet and Communist senator Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) who opposes the fascist president in post-war Chile. Threatened with arrest, he goes underground. Refusing to live the life of a fugitive he taunts the government authorities by sometimes appearing in public or leaving evidence of his movements. He is pursued by the Chief of Police (Gael Garcia Bernal). David Stratton had this to say about Neruda: ‘this smart, whimsical, extremely quirky and devilishly entertaining portrait of the poet is far from being a traditional biography but it joyfully celebrates the spirit of the man and his momentous times.’
