Storyline

Killian is a young man who has never left the remote mountains of Huesca (Spain) which saw him grow up. In 1953, he travels back to the exotic Equatorial African island of Fernando Poo, in Spanish Guinee, where he was born, to work in a cacao plantation alongside his father and his brother. During 20 years in this island, until the troubled days of independence, he will undertake a journey towards maturity and knowledge, but will also have to deal with pain and loss.

Goofs

During the dance club scene, set in 1953/4, the guitarist is playing a custom colour Fender Stratocaster. The Fender Stratocaster was introduced in the USA in 1954, and custom colours weren't available until 1956/7. Also, it if very doubtful any African musician could afford such an instrument. The first Stratocaster didn't reach the UK until 1958. See more »

True Art
2 June 2016 | by jasminedesduneSee all my reviews

This was one of the most beautiful and moving movies that I have seen in my entire life. It was shot and written so well, with wonderful acting that brought depth to the characters and substance to the plot. Though it was almost 3 hours, I could have watched so much more. I enjoyed the journey that I darted on with the characters and everything came full circle and was done so incredibly well.

The love shared by the two main characters was so deep and pure that I was moved to tears---sobbing, really---multiple times.

But it's more than a beautiful love story, it's life in art. Truly, a work of art. I'm so glad that I chose to watch it, I'm just so moved.
