BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths | Official Trailer | Netflix

Five-time Academy Award®-winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu brings us BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths.

BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths is an epic, visually stunning and immersive experience set against the intimate and moving journey of Silverio, a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles, who, after being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, is compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit. The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder.

With both emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, the history of Mexico and the deeply emotional familial bonds he shares with his wife and children. Indeed, what it means to be human in these very peculiar times.

Mexican actor Daniel Giménez Cacho plays Silverio Gama in an indelible performance. Shot on resplendent 65mm by Academy Award®–nominee Darius Khondji (Amour, Se7en) and written by Iñárritu and Nicolás Giacobone (Oscar®–winning Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and Biutiful), BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths marks Iñárritu’s first film to be shot in Mexico since 2000’s international sensation Amores Perros. The film features production design by the Oscar®–winning Mexican designer Eugenio Caballero (ROMA, Pan’s Labyrinth) and costume design by Anna Terrazas (The Deuce, ROMA).

  1. Netflix desperately wants them golden statues so bad, throwing out just movie after movie after movie this season.

  2. Carajo, esta película es un giro de tuerca en la filmografía de Iñárritu. Nada más viendo el tráiler me parece estar viendo a Jodorowsky.

  3. Wow, blown away. Have no idea what this film is about and I don't care. You had me on the third shot.

  4. Keep going netflix. You’re the only platform with movies that important. Going to festivals, giving money to the greatest directors on earth to do their movies. Alfunso Cuaron, Noah Baumbach, Jane Campion, Guillermo Del Toro…

  5. Surprised this wasn’t shot by Emmanuel Lubezki. But it’s great to see his style popularized

  6. Podu podu podu en thalaivar paru vanthutan magical realism oda🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  7. MEN have no place in society to show their emotions or talk directly about "ME" and be given the compassionate empathy we do give to a woman's personal story.
    Think about it, if this had been made by a woman would critics have personally attacked her like they did to Inarritu?
    Imagine critics telling a Woman
    SHE is "Pretentious" and "egocéntric"
    *A movie can't be "egocentric", a person is, a movie can't be narcissist, a person is. Those are adjectives to a person, those were personal attacks.
    Reviews seem more a critique to his persona than an actual review of a film.
    To make it worst they ALSO say
    oh but we got to give him that his movie is "Jaw dropping" with "unforgettable scenes" and packed with perfect cinematography to override the past 10 years of any film…
    Makes no sense
    and confirms the bias.
    Some compare his personal movie to
    Cuaron's "Roma" But that one is not egocentric? Why ( because it's about his nanny, his life but through the lense of a woman) now that's empathetic!
    It's clear that men have no place to voice their personal stories.
    Ironically in this era of so called "equality"
    With so called professional critics and an audience perfectly ok with men like I Inarritu being personally attacked with disgusting adjectives!!
    CRITICS keep your bitter personal opinions and stick to reviewing the work of art (plot, acting, etc etc)
    It's a review about a MOVIE not about him.

  8. If Luis Buñuel could make a movie using digital tools, I think it would look something like this.

  9. Now that’s some great cinematography.. I’m just wondering how much it cost for the rights to that classic Beatles song!

  10. I see no Lubenski this time around then.
    Cant wait to see it! I heard Alejandro clapped back at critics for calling him pretentious

  11. The critics are either extremely racist, extremely ignorant or lazy movie experts because I doubt that they went to do some research on Mexican history before doing their reviews. Several scenes are reenactments from Mexican history, Spaniard colonialism and even from the Mexican-American War.
    Of course images will make no sense if you don't understand the context.
    If I watch a movie from China with Chinese undertones and there's things I don't understand the first thing I'm going to do is a little bit of research into that country's culture and history, and not just sit in my Americanized lazy chair forcing to see it from my own perspective or expecting a FOREIGN movie (which this is) and artists to ONLY cater to my ignorance.

  12. Trash. This is not a film. This is a big ball of nonsensical randomness that tells no real story. People love getting sucked into stupid pretentious nothingness I guess.

  13. As a Mexican, I'm thrilled to watch this movie asap. There's a scene that reminded me of Radiohead's video for Just. Mexico is indeed a state of mind and I'm quite sure critics and people that haven't been here may Not get it and that's alright. That's the pair of huevos Iñárritu has.

  14. The part where the two men are falling from a tower and before that we see an American flag that's regarding the Mexican-American War, Mexican soldiers jumped from a tower with the Mexican flag so Americans could not take it.

  15. As usual, with this genre of film Ambiguity is the chief element. Amazing that 55 years were required to nail it.
