Storyline

Dr. Juan (40) has survived a shipwreck, from which he was only able to save his pre-teen niece (or daughter?), Tamara and mentally handicapped brother, Alfonso. Behind him, in a different city, he left a past as dramatic and capricious as the winds that lash the Atlantic Coast of Cádiz, which he chose as his new home to escape from his memories. In this out-of-the way place, he meets Maribel, his maid, and Sara, another "outsider" and newcomer like himself. They unexpectedly help him face the memories that torment him relentlessly: a star-crossed love affair with his brother's wife, and the mysterious death of the brother he both loved best and hated most: Damián.

Beautiful film with excellent plot
12 October 2007 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a man wanting to leave his past behind by moving to a small town with his niece and his mentally retarded brother.

It is such a beautiful film. The plot is excellent. The interwoven scenes of past and present reveal the story slowly, and convincingly. The characters are built well, and I care for them a lot. Charo's character is particularly affecting, her manipulation towards men is almost scary. The relationship between Juan, Damian and Tamara is delicate, and is handled well in the film. The transition from doubt to trust between Juan and Sara is moving. I am surprised that there are only 48 votes for this film. It is a beautiful film, and I think it deserves a larger audience.
