Prolific Chilean Pablo Larraín ('The Club', 'Jackie') tackles poet and politician Pablo Neruda in what can be (and has been) comfortably described as an 'anti-biopic'. 'Neruda' adopts an engrossing, playful approach to recounting the life events of the senator, poet, bigamist and fugitive (Luis Gnecco), and the pursuit of him by prideful police inspector Peluchonneau (Gael García Bernal), who doggedly follows his paper trail of little notes left in pulp novels as he zigzags across the country, culminating in a memorable final act set in the snowy Andes.
