Alone in this remote corner of Fuerteventura and dominated by pride, anger and jealousy, Álvaro decides take his surf table looking for the perfect wave, but while he walks by the coastal dunes close to the jeep, he suddenly stumbles and slides down the dune to a reef, where he keeps in a delicate position in the border trying to avoid crashing against the rocks.

Superb in everyway
22 February 2019 | by marrang55See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this film The acting, scenery, tension and score. The actor portrayed an ordinary enough guy and did this well without any over acting. The surfer was just going about his usual routine when he became involved in an accident. Due to his injuries he lapses into unconsciousness and dreams, sometimes he hallucinates. The film keeps your attention as you learn about his regrets as he becomes closer to dying. Figments of his imagination occasionally keep his spirits up. The managing of the pain of broken bones, deep cuts and internal bleeding whilst battling the heat of the day and the cold of the night shows strong survival instincts. Unfortunately time is running out. The film considers moral attitude and that for some this is in the forefront of their mind when it is too late. One of the best films I have seen in a decade and in my opinion very deserving of 10 out of 10.
