„No“ is the fourth film of the 36-year-old Chilean director Pablo Larraín, and the third in his series of films about the era of Dictator Augusto Pinochet. Larrain was born in the early years of the Pinochet era to a more prosperous environment, his parents are politicians – his father was a senator „from the right wing,“ as Larraín says himself. Therefore, if he does not draw for his „Pinochet Movies“ from autobiographical information, then here he succeeds even more: to make a national community memory visible.
The young advertising upstart Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal) had taken over, really just to show the PR strategy for the list of „No“ to his advertising agency boss (a „yes“-men) that he can do better. Larraín traces the campaign, with promotional pieces that occupy a third of the film.Pinochet’s supporters and the opposition had to apply per day 15 minutes to their campaign on the national TV channel. He sold the principle of freedom exactly as if he would want to bring soft drinks to the people: with a rainbow and people laughing, dancing on the streets. Who would not want this life? Of course Saveedra advocated here as a fairy tale, like all propaganda is one, but Saveedra outperformed its opponent in an act of mimetic overfitting yet. The message, which he applied, was in essence different.
Nicole Kidmanas Charlene Wittstock
The Hollywood star Nicole Kidman (45) will be seen as Charlene Wittstock in U.S. theatres later this year. The Weinstein Company film studio wants the film „Grace of Monaco“to be in theatres in December. The start date is important because the film then goes into the race for the next Oscars.
Producer Harvey Weinstein said aloud release: „More than 30 years after her death, the story of Grace Kelly is a story of not to be surpassed fascination.“ Kidman was a perfect portrait of a woman created, which is not only been royal, but also a legend the screen and a fashion icon.
