As singular as its title, "I Travel Because I Have To, I Come Back Because I Love You" embraces road movie, personal journal and trancelike study of arcing grief.
The movie's true brilliance comes from its portrayal of how the world curls around you in the grip of heartache-every song on the radio, every face you see, every story you're told reflecting only what you've lost.

Boldly introspective but illuminating travelogue across a desolate landscape in modern-day Brazil by an existential outsider.
