intriguing and subtle
3 August 2014 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Querencia, a Spanish term, is a place a wounded bull goes to gather strength. Sarah's querencia is in her running shoes. Her wounds, significant and debilitating money, health and relationship troubles, begin to diminish when she is running over the landscape. As her troubles mount however, it remains to be seen just how far her feet can take her. Sarah also prefers running to talking, so there isn't much dialogue in the film, yet the filmmakers deftly craft an intriguing and subtle portrait of a young woman attempting to find her way in the world while staying true to what she loves. Beyond running she is not so sure what she wants. Rilke encourages us to "be patient with all that is unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves." Sarah does this best on her feet. Seen at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
