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.
Part of the movie was shot in the island of Gran Canaria, Spain. The locations helped to recreate the island of Fernando Poo, in Equatorial Guinea in the mid 50s. See more »
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 »
This is a great movie! However, I had to force myself to watch it until the end because of the English dubbing/voiceover did not align properly and match the characters emotions and etc. You have Africans depicting strong emotions but the dubbing is this monotoned all white American voice w/ no emotion. It doesn't match. Even the captioning was off. I would've preferred to watch the original version and select English captioning.
