I had the pleasure to watch this movie on the 7th Zurich Film Festival and was deeply impressed by the power of the content, as well as the great cinematography of the movie.
It interweaves the fate of the refugees, a father and his son in particular, as well as the story of a Spanish boarder police men and a German tourist couple and how their lives change upon interaction with the refugees.
The movie shows with great honesty how overwhelming the issue is and how little can actually be done, as the source of the problems lies deep and beyond the power of the individual. However, it delivers a strong message simultaneously, not to close the eyes, to engage with the issue. Personally I find the line, told by the José to Carla "You stopped and tried to help. Thats more than most people do. You stopped..." very thought provoking. How often am I myself closing my eyes? If the opportunity arises to watch this movie I strongly suggest to use this opportunity as it is a deeply enriching movie.
