Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s, ‘Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths’ has finally released its marvelous trailer. The essence of ‘Bardo’ is hard to distill into a single description. It follows a successful journalist and filmmaker (Daniel Giménez Cacho) who returns to his native Mexico City after many years in the U.S. The trailer unfolds with surreal twists, bigger than life metaphors and bold transitions. The trailer depicts the journey of the protagonist through an existential crisis as he grapples with his identity, the absurdity of his memories as well as the past of his nation, all the while looking for explanations in his past to make sense of who he is today.
‘Bardo’ is a psychological drama with three different plot lines related to a car accident, depicting various facets of Mexican society. It is a divine experience to watch this phantasmagoric film trailer. The movie hosts an ensemble of cast including Daniel Giménez Cacho, Griselda Siciliani, Ximena Lamadrid and Andrés Almeida among many more. This spell-binding trailer is edited masterfully by Mark Woollen. The film promises to be a wild ride, metaphorically combining the tragic with the absurd. It is a known fact that Alejandro Iñárritu is deeply connected with his Bardo-project. It assembles a stunning screenplay to the beats of The Beatles’ “I Am the Walrus.”
Iñárritu’s Netflix Oscar Contender ‘Bardo’ Is now 22 minutes shorter after the divisive festival run at Venice this year; regardless, it is certain to be yet another compelling psychological drama that delves into the character’s psyche while also making subtle allusions to bigger issues like the character’s perspective on society and the purpose of life. It is set to be a three-hour long movie and we can only hope that it doesn’t overwhelm its audience during its screening. Bardo is a very deep and personal project, so viewers should anticipate it to be emotionally powerful and provide a dramatic, intricate peek into the mind and heart of one of today’s top directors.
Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 18, 2022, before streaming on Netflix on December 16, 2022.
