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.

Editing by Andrea Chignoli

“Nominated by the Academy as the year's best foreign-language film, No grabs you hard, no mercy, and keeps you riveted.” – Rolling Stone, Peter Travers

“Larraín's script is punctuated by dark bursts of humor, and the filmmaker knowingly navigates his audience to a nail-biting - though never cloying, and fully warranted - climax.” - Simon Miraudo, Quickflix

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“Larraín's unarguable point is that, in politics, if we wait for good to issue only from the pure in heart, we will be waiting a very long time.” - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
