Starring Daniela Vega, Francisco Reyes, Luis Gnecco, Aline Küppenheim, Nicolás Saavedra, Amparo Noguera, Néstor Cantillana, Alejandro Goic, Antonia Zegers and Sergio Hernandez. Directed by Sebastián Lelio.

Santiago bar singer Marina Vidal is headstrong, vivacious, confident and beautiful. After her much older lover, Orlando, dies suddenly, Marina wants to grieve just as anyone would.

NERUDA (2017)
Starring Gael García Bernal, Luis Gnecco, Mercedes Morán, Alfredo Castro, Michael Silva, Pablo Derqui, Alejandro Goic, Antonia Zegers, Marcelo Alonso and Héctor Noguera. Directed by Pablo Larraín.

It’s 1948, and the Cold War has reached Chile. Following the President’s outlawing of communism, Neruda (played by Luis Gnecco, bearing a remarkable likeness) 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 (the superb Gael Garcia Bernal), hoping to make a name for himself by capturing the country’s most infamous fugitive.

Whilst life on the run holds little charm for the cultured and hedonistic Neruda, he uses the opportunity to reinvent his work and life, leaving clues for his pursuer designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse even more dangerous and thrilling. Thwarting Peluchonneau at every turn, it’s almost as if the detective is the man Neruda would have written to chase himself...

REVIEWS Neruda - A philosophical snoozefest

GLORIA (2014)
Starring Paulina García, Sergio Hernández, Coca Guazzini, Antonia Santa María, Diego Fontecilla, Fabiola Zamora, Hugo Moraga, Alejandro Goic, Liliana García and Luz Jiménez. Directed by Sebastián Lelio.

Gloria is a 58-year-old divorcée. Her children have all left home but she has no desire to spend her days and nights alone. Determined to defy old age and loneliness, she rushes headlong into a whirl of singles’ parties on the hunt for instant gratification – which just leads repeatedly to disappointment and emptiness. But then she meets Rodolfo, an ex-naval officer seven years her senior to whom she feels romantically inclined. She even begins to imagine a permanent relationship. However, the encounter presents unexpected challenges and Gloria gradually finds herself being forced to confront her own dark secrets.
