A Film by Pablo Larraín

Starring Gael Garcia Bernal

In 1988, Chilean military 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.


"If there are fewer white-knuckle showdowns than in a Hollywood movie, the trade-off is a cool, ironic intelligence that ripples off the screen and up the years to where we live."
--Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"On every level, "No" leaves one with bittersweet feelings about democracy, love and the cost of compromise."
--John Anderson, Newsday

"A political drama, a personal drama, a sharp-eyed study of how the media manipulate us from all sides, No reels and ricochets with emotional force."
-- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2012 Academy Awards
