It’s 1948, and the Cold War has reached Chile. Following the President’s outlawing of communism, Neruda (Luis Gnecco) and his artist wife Delia (Mercedes Morán) are forced into hiding. Beloved by the populace, they slip underground and are pursued by incompetent, vainglorious police inspector Oscar Peluchonneau (Gael Garcia Bernal), hoping to make a name for himself by capturing the country’s most infamous fugitive.
Blending visual grandeur and literary wit, NERUDA is a beguiling reinvention of the cinematic biography. Playfully confounding expectations at every turn, the film offers a startling rumination on the split between the person and persona, the man and the artist.
