Soft spoken pyromaniac Amador Coro (Amador Arias) serves time for having provoked a fire. On his release, he returns to his hometown, an intimate village ensconced in the picturesque mountains of rural Galicia — and begins anew with his soft-hearted mother Benedicta and her three cows. Life continues in accordance with the rhythm of nature until one night a new fire arises and endangers the region. (Winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard Jury Prize in 2019)
“Dignified, unshowy performances… A wonderfully mysterious drama with an inscrutable protagonist and a vivid sense of place.” —Ed Potton, The Times “...Refreshingly occupies an almost uncategorizable cinematic realm. Were it a piece of writing it would exist at the crossroads of an essay, a reportage, and a series of haikus singing the praises and the plights of a threatened ecosystem… The film’s delicate pace and the contemplative choreography of its camerawork conjure a sense of authenticity so organic that we’re almost convinced that there’s no space between the characters and the actors, between the filmed setting and the actual landscape.” —Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine “Subtle, precise and exhilarating when it needs to be… A crime story wrapped inside a piece of landscape portraiture.” —David Jenkins, Little White Lies
