    In 1948, Cold War reaches Chile. The political landscape crumbles and senator Neruda struggles after impeachment from congress. An inspector plots to capture Neruda but he comes up with every possible means to avoid it by even cross-dressing amongst women to hide. Eventually, the inspector chase after Neruda as he leaves the city to seek asylum and they meet by the borderline. The two facing each other on a snowfield show that poems and the police cannot coexist. It indirectly portrays the dark reality of Latin America during the times when the poet, Neruda, intervened in the politics of Chile, and shows how a poet’s language overcomes the contradictions and limitations of it. A masterpiece by Pablo Larrain boasts beautiful cinematography as it satires the time period and the frivolous reality using the footsteps of Neruda. [LEE Sang-yong]
