Storyline

Exhausted from the demands of his abilities as a healer, Diego lives in isolation on a small island in his native Puerto Rico. However, his quiet life is disrupted when Hilary, an American documentarian, arrives to continue her project on migration and identity. Attracted to Diego's mystery and the local gossip about him, she becomes close to him, but discovers his "talent" has a violent edge, one that brings painful consequences to both of them.

Beautiful and lyrical
9 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took me a little while to adjust to the lyrical pacing of this film, but this film is so gorgeously shot, and the story put together in such an unusual manner that I was along for the ride.

I first saw the film at the Cine Las American film fest, so I had the advantage of watching it on the big screen. The director, Nicole Elmer, really pays attention to the world the lead actor, Diego, lives in as a healer. The environment plays a huge part. The editing style for the healing sequences is both dark and hopeful at the same time. I have not seen many films that have been edited like this.

If you like artful films, I would suggest taking a look at this. It's not like anything I've seen in a long time. And Danny Trejo plays a hermit to boot. Odd role for him.
