Chile/France/USA | 2012 | col | dir. Pablo Larraín, with Gael García Bernal, Alfredo Castro, Luis Gnecco, Antónia Zegers, Marcial Tagle
A compelling period piece starring Gael García Bernal, No follows a cynical young advertising executive who is asked to spearhead the ‘No’ campaign for those opposing the Pinochet regime to bring democracy to Chile. With scant resources, constant scrutiny from individuals sympathetic to Pinochet’s totalitarian regime, this bold, enthralling film looks at how a team of Chile’s ‘Mad Men’ and opponents of the dictatorial regime instigated change.
