Movie Info

Alvaro (Jorge Román) is an outsider in many ways. Both an intellectual and a homosexual, he earns his living by fishing and cutting reeds off the coast of Argentina, only venturing to the mainland on occasion. But to get there, he must travel by ferry -- and the skipper, El Turu (Daniel Valenzuela), harasses Alvaro, as he believes his lack of morals threatens the nearby village. However, as El Turu's bullying gets more brazen, it appears that the ferryman is fighting his own personal demons.

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

    January 9, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 13, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 9, 2008 | Full Review…
  • 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.
