We might expect a biopic of the left-wing poet and politician, what we get is a sumptuous tale of a fictive investigator’s search for Neruda in 1948 Chile. Nods to noirish detectives, a screenplay for intelligent adults, outstanding performances and wonderful cinematography.
9 major wards including wins for direction (Larrain (Jackie, The Club)), acting (Bernal, (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Motorcycle Diaries)), screenplay and art direction.
