Original surroundings for a stunning drama.
27 July 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Set in the Canary Islands the location commands our immediate attention. The rough terrain is of volcanic origin and hot spots among the rocks can ignite a bundle of furze in a matter of seconds. We see that plants are nourished in nest-like excavations and down by the sea there is a network of saltlakes. To add to the unique atmosphere we see camels being used as a mode of transport. A strange place indeed! And what of the inhabitants? In such an isolated place it is understandable they seem somewhat bored with life. There is the pub of course and the adjacent dance hall....but not much else. They seem to be a superstitious lot believing that the ghosts of the dead can reappear from the sea.

Into this scene comes the rather quiet and conservative Fermin (Carmelo Gonzalez) a doctor to whom Mararia becomes instantly attracted. Not long afterwards an English vulcanologist (Iain Glen) arrives to survey the volcanic surroundings.

Following a rather quiet beginning, the film now takes on a sense of real drama. Beautiful Mararia discovers she is pregnant and on her wedding day it seems that her would-be husband the vulcanologist has disappeared with all his instruments. Now it is time to rid the house of all its evil spirits so Mararia's godmother gets busy weaving her magic spells.

When in years later Mararia's beautiful young child disappears it is just too much for Mararia to bear.

The film then races to a dramatic climax down by the sea. If you believe that the ghosts of the dead will rise up from the sea, think again. The ending is both tragic and unforgettable.
