After a long hiatus since his last film, The Revenant, which was released in 2015, Alejandro González Iñárritu has thankfully graced us with a new film titled Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths. The film has caused a stir not only with its script and story, but also with its actors and actresses. But before we get into the of Bardo cast, let’s take a quick look at the film’s story.
