Chile/2016/108mins/15/subs. Dir: Pablo Larrain. With: Luis Gnecco, Gael Garcia Bernal, Mercedes Morán
Chile, late 1940s. Pablo Neruda is on the run from a government crack-down. Peluchonneau, the dogged detective on his tail, and Neruda become two poles of an intertwined narrative; both determined to create their own myths, one as the smart top detective, the other as a great romantic poet and hero of the people. A fascinating examination of how we create the story of our own lives.
