The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM | SEVEN DAYS | -

Beau­ti­ful, well acted, slightly frus­trat­ing at­tempt to tell the story of Pablo Neruda’s flight from Chile through the eyes of a fic­tion­alised cop (Gar­cía Ber­nal) on his tail. The film does ul­ti­mately threaten to dis­ap­pear up its own un­stressed dactyl. Lar­raín is so con­cerned with making al­le­gor­i­cal po­etry that he loses touch with his char­ac­ters and his ob­scurely pur­posed nar­ra­tive. But you are never too far from a strik­ing im­age. Club, lim re­lease, 107 min
