Before Bob Dylan, there was Pablo Neruda, the beloved, Nobel-prize winning poet from Chile. But Dylan has never been the subject of a manhunt; Neruda however, was.

Chile, 1948.  After publicly protesting the government’s imprisonment of Communist mine workers, Pablo Neruda faces persecution from an increasingly dictatorial regime and is forced underground with an ambitious police inspector in hot pursuit. Meanwhile, in Europe, the legend of the poet hounded by the policeman grows, and artists led by Pablo Picasso call for Neruda’s freedom. Neruda, however, sees the struggle with his police inspector nemesis as an opportunity to reinvent himself. He cunningly plays with the inspector, leaving clues designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse ever more perilous. In this story of a persecuted poet and his obsessive adversary, Neruda recognizes his own heroic possibilities: a chance to become a symbol for liberty, as well as a literary legend.

Luis Gnecco and Gael García Bernal star. Director Pablo Larrain is Chile’s most inventive and provocative filmmaker. 

Neruda is Chile’s entry into the Best Foreign Language category at this year’s Academy Awards – and it’s certainly a contender. Like the poet, it is an exciting, romantic film that embraces the complexity of its central characters, that tries to lay bare on the screen what Neruda accomplished on the page. –New York Film Festival
