A glorious mix of history and imagination, this is a lavishly mounted and grandly entertaining depiction of the 19402 manhunt for exiled Chilean poet and politician Pablo Neruda.
Beloved by the populace, Pablo and his wife Delia slip underground and are pursued by incompetent, vainglorious police inspector Oscar Peluchonneau (the superb Gael García Bernal), hoping to make a name for himself by capturing the country’s most infamous fugitive. Gripping, funny and ingeniously conceived.
