Otheguy might still be working out the convincing details of human nature, but one film in, he already has the hang of panoramic loneliness.

The evocative milieu and stunning cinematography both underscore Otheguy's atmosphere of isolation, but his lack of momentum, character development, and deepening of themes make us feel mighty alone, too. Maybe that's the point.

The film's most interesting aspect is the hauntingly beautiful depiction of this world and the isleños, its inhabitants.

Determinedly shot in grainy black-and-white, with a bass clarinet portraying the unabashedly-queer bookbinder's life, director/writer Santiago Otheguy has crafted a loving portrait that few will have the patience to finish, much less understand.

November 6, 2010 Full Review Source: JWR

Paced with a steady ebb and flow of tidal-like transitions, Santiago Otheguy's impressive debut feature juxtaposes images of natural order with human acts of destruction.
