Some people go through life completely unaware of their behavior towards the ones they love. When such behavior tends to be kind, they are lucky; otherwise, life would need to shake them to their core in order to wake them up to reality.
"Volcano" is a powerful movie about that possibility that surrounds us every minute of every second: the incomparable subtleness of life and its, sometimes, incomprehensible way of turning things around. The story is quite simple, but the acting is absolutely stupendous. It has a very slow development, which is not so unusual on these types of movies. However, the lack of background music, which helps me connect with the character's tribulations left me hanging. Obviously this is a very personal view, so maybe you should check this one for yourself. Good movie, though.
