Beauty is evident in Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths, the latest from director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The protagonist, Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho), is a man in crises – midlife, existential and so on – who staggers through beautiful vistas after beautiful vistas that he only realizes too late to be in a surreal quest for his own identity something is missing. There is the beauty of life in Mexico City and wider Mexico, his motherland and the place he left behind to pursue a prosperous life and career. And there is the beauty of Los Angeles, the place that called him to departure and from which he now feels alienated. The subway is flooded, people are collapsing in the streets. The cities we know so well have disruptions! And it’s a sight to behold.

We sat down with Bardo production designer Eugenio Caballero — who previously helped capture Alfonso Cuarón’s Mexico City in Rome — about the majestic Chapultepec Castle, helping great Mexican directors realize their own visions of their shared hometown, and the mysterious Beauty of Baja California, entertained.

What is your relationship with Mexico City?
I was born here. It’s the city I grew up in. And then I walked away for many years. I went to Europe to study. The film Roma brought me back to Mexico. I’ve always had this deep connection to Mexico City, but haven’t been here for many years. Somehow I’m lucky that this film basically only happens in this city. It’s a reinterpretation of the city.

How is that?
Well, it’s a dreamscape where the old and historic and the new parts of the city coincide.

Such a collision is perhaps most evident in the scene at Chapultepec Castle, where the present-day protagonist becomes involved in the battle that took place there in 1847 between Mexico and the United States. can you talk about shooting
It’s a very complex place, of course, because it’s a historical landmark. It was the presidential house for many, many years. Chapultepec Castle has all the layers that Mexico has with the old European style at the base. One of the first things that happened after the revolution was that architecture associated with the old regime was basically removed. The main goal of the revolutionaries was to eliminate the influence of Europeans.
