This biopic about the hot-blooded Chilean poet and leftist politician Pablo Neruda facing an emerging dictatorship in Chile illuminates the endless struggle between political authority and the creative imagination. In 1948, Neruda is engaged in a rhetorical war with Chiles president, who is moving from left to right. Neruda and his wife go on the run when the president bans the Communist Party, and they are pursued by a police inspector determined to track down the countrys most famous fugitive.
Mr. Larraín invites us to believe that history is on the side of the poets and the humanists, and that art will make fools of politicians and policemen. But he is also aware, as Pablo Neruda was, that history sometimes has other plans. A. O. Scott, The New York Times
