Director Pablo Larrain’s follow up to The Club is an 'anti-bio' of one of Chile's most vital and intriguing figures: poet-diplomat and politician, Pablo Neruda. Set in 1948, Neruda finds himself on the wrong side of an anti-communist drive and is forced into hiding. Details of this exile are delivered in narration by Gael Garcia Bernal, playing the detective who is tasked with tracking him down.

It is a brilliantly ambiguous, insidious portrait of an often venal and hypocritical man. Larrain’s skill is to draw him as someone who nevertheless deserves his heroic status as a key figure in Chile’s struggle
