An existential nightmare of grief, guilt and penance, with Guillermo Nieto's sublime photography of the frozen, otherworldly landscape a correlative to Santiago's suspended state.

Just as the constantly falling snow leaches the colour from the backdrop, so the emotion bleeds out of the film.

An Argentine film packed full of pain and suffering that nevertheless fails utterly to connect with its audience.
