'Hierro' is a suspenseful film about a woman whose young son disappears while on a ferry underway to an island off the coast of Spain. She starts a desperate search on the rather desolate island with bare rock and sparse vegetation, with a few reclusive and unhelpful people staying in caravans.
This story cleverly links with the drama of another child's disappearance after a car crash, a few years earlier.
This is a well-crafted film with excellent acting, and cinematography. At times it seems a bit too sentimental, but given the subject matter, it is hard not to get emotionally involved. A film worth watching. 7/10.
