One of the best-received films so far over at Cannes is Chilean director Pablo Larrain's "No," starring Gael Garcia Bernal. Its rave reviews have even seen many question why it wasn't chosen for the official competition lineup as opposed to the Directors' Fortnight as it may very well have been a Palme d'Or candidate.

One of the best-received films so far over at Cannes is Chilean director Pablo Larrain's "No," starring Gael Garcia Bernal. Its rave reviews have even seen many question why it wasn't chosen for the official competition lineup as opposed to the Directors' Fortnight as it may very well have been a Palme d'Or candidate.

"No" follows a brash, young advertising exec (Bernal) who in 1988 launched an audacious plan to win over Chilean voters and help defeat the presidency of their military dictator, General Augusto Pinochet, in an upcoming referendum. Our review from the Croisette described it as "superbly shot, full of human characters, depicting a galvanizing true story while also showing us the hearts and lives of the people on both sides of the vote." 

Sony Pictures Classics recently picked up the film for stateside distribution, which bodes well for the Larrain-Bernal collaboration. While there's no word just yet on when they plan to release it, in the meantime we now have a five minute clip from "No" showcasing Bernal in all his might and power, presenting his campaign to a room full of fatcats.
