Mixing history with fiction, the film shows the dramatic events of the brutal suppression of communists in Chile in 1948, based around the life of Pablo Neruda, a Senator, former ambassador and well known poet (later being awarded the Nobel Prize). Neruda speaks out against repression and is forced to become a fugitive in his own country, hunted by a police inspector who feels he needs to get to know his prey, so immersing himself in Neruda’s poetry.
Directed by Pablo Larraín and starring Gael García Bernal, Luis Gnecco and Mercedes Morán
