Trivia

The seaport where the two friends say goodbye is not the one at El Hierro. The producers chose instead to film the scene in Agaete seaport, Gran Canaria (a completely different island to the East), due to the overwhelming feeling the hight cliffs and steep mountains in the background provide, in line with the film's desolate atmosphere. The actual port at El Hierro would have disrupted that feeling, being more populated and placed in an area of gentle slopes. See more »

Fantastic score, beautiful cinematography and good acting by Elena Anaya - all ruined by a bad script.

The score carries some similarities to "The Machinist" (the composer here was the orchestrator on the latter), including what sounded to me like a Theramin - and was simply too good for this film. At one point it sounds very similar to Mozart's Requiem. Together with the cinematography, it reminded me of the atmosphere of "The Machinist".

The only thing I didn't like about the cinematography is the use of digital camera, which was very obvious in numerous points throughout the movie.
