In his fourth feature, Alonso trusts fully in the power of the camera to communicate emotions and connections with a stunning grace and total confidence.

Modest rewards await those willing to be patient with Lisandro Alonso's austere drama.

Although it has its visual pleasures, and there's plenty to admire about his compositions, the journey in Liverpool seems comparatively slight.

The imagery is meticulous, the pacing carefully measured, and the mood generally melancholy and enigmatic. Whether the film adds up to more than the some of its parts is moot; Alonso certainly seems keen not to give away any superflous information.

Liverpool opens with a big blast of neo surf, and coasts on that energy for the movie's 84 minutes, ending with a shot of corresponding impact.
