Mixing the themes of its location (the end of the world in Roman times), and its characters (coming to their end), FINISTERRE, links both in its title, and on the screen.

As a superb saga of a dysfunctional family brilliantly acted by Nancho Novo and Geraldine Chaplin, among others, the movie offers an array of different characters, wonderfully developed and interwoven in one of the finest examples of current Spanish cinema.
