Film description

Despite appearances, this film by the Argentinean director Lisandro Alonso is not set in Liverpool, but in the Land of Fire, where the main character, sailor Farrel, comes from. After many years of absence and roaming from port to port all over the world, Farrel returns to his home village. He finds his relatives who lead an unhurried life filled with hard everyday work. It seems that the meeting does not change either the sailor or the family who has learned to live as if he had never existed.

Alonso's film is not spectacular; it is even a test for our perception habits. Those who love contemplative cinema will appreciate the unhurried narration and beauty of the carefully planned, somewhat empty frames because they make the metaphorical story about loneliness clearly visible and teach the spectator to become more and more sensitive to its symbolical meaning.
