Trivia

The seaport where the two friends say goodbye is not the one at El Hierro. The producers chose instead to film the scene in Agaete seaport, Gran Canaria (a completely different island to the East), due to the overwhelming feeling the hight cliffs and steep mountains in the background provide, in line with the film's desolate atmosphere. The actual port at El Hierro would have disrupted that feeling, being more populated and placed in an area of gentle slopes. See more »

Underrated by the Hollywood followers
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very underrated movie. This movie is good, the acting is terrific as well as the photography. The script is a descent one with a twist that works perfectly well, I don't see the so called evident predictability at all. And most of the complaints here are based also in that same old mantra: it's a slow paced movie. It seems that the Hollywood followers need one more century to realize the difference between art and fast food, not to mention the "lack of gore" and all the horror paraphernalia that they want to see all the time. Very good movie, intriguing, touching, visually beautiful. I hope the director doesn't pay too much attention to the unfair reviews here this time and move forward with contentment. Very well done.
