No with Gael García Bernal

This should be a must watch trailer, because this is one of the best films of the year. Sony Classics has unveiled the US trailer for Pablo Larraín's Chilean film No, starring Gael García Bernal. This is Chile's 2013 Oscar entry and deserving so, because it's a brilliant period character study and García Bernal should get an acting nomination, too. This trailer also does a great job of setting up the scenario - a story about an ad exec, played by Garcia Bernal, who comes up with a "NO" campaign to defeat military dictator Augusto Pinochet in 1988 Chile. It's shot in U-matic but works for effect, because it's a fantastic film. Don't skip this!

Here's the official US trailer for Pablo Larraín's film No, originally embedded from Yahoo:

In 1988, Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote "YES" or "NO" to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

No is directed by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, of the films Fuga, Tony Manero and Post Mortem, from a script by Pedro Peirano. It first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Director's Fortnight. Sony Pictures Classics is releasing No in limited theaters on February 15th. This is Chile's 2013 Oscar selection.

    "what the hell is a mime doing in the movie?" LOL. that does look good - hopefully it'll show up on netflix.

    Looks really good actually. Why isn't this a "must watch", is there some sort of criteria you've set yourselves up with? Just curious
    • No specific criteria really, sometimes it just works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes we have too many "must watch" in a day, sometimes we have films like this. Plus, I also don't like making Yahoo embedded videos must watch, I prefer clear HD uploads first. But still, it's a must watch trailer in every other way!

        Thanks and couldn't agree more. Although I did watch this trailer on my phone over my morning cherios, so I didn't notice the lack of hd. Ha

    Holy crap. Where the hell did they find a Umatic camera? Museum of TV and Radio? LOL. Awesome visuals. Wondering if it was lit with classic instruments as well?
