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.
