Robert Walker Jr.,
I saw this film at a festival in Delhi and was amazed at the inter-mingling of the characters and very linear story-line which was totally intriguing and extremely well shot. I reached a little late for the film (around 5-10 minutes I guess) but after the first couple of minutes of wandering, fully got engrossed in the film. The story is about a man with Pancreatic Cancer, who meets a beautiful village girl, Emma, who lives a rather alone and secluded life - away from the chaos-order of the city.. Well that's we initially suppose, because the truth is that her life is pretty chaotic within herself, and the coming of Max (the male protagonist) brings a refreshing, yet another chaotic change to her life... Confused? You have to watch the film to know what I mean! For instance, her kitchen, which is totally a mess, full of dirt, filth and gory pig blood... So is her room, her farm and her life - full of dirt, filth and dishonestly.
Max on the other hand is a very dull, yet a powerful character. He represents every suffering soul on this plant, in pursuit of happiness.. but in his case he knows he could never, never be happy - he is soon to die because of his disease. He wants to go to Mexico to run away from his life (and probably his inevitable death)... Will he succeed in running away from his fate? Will Emma change for him - her world of chaos and routine? Will she accept Max's life of dullness and disease, giving him space to live in her heart, knowing he is soon to leave this world... Watch the movie to get your answers, while I ponder over mine!
