The atmosphere of Greek tragedy comes to contemporary Spain in this brooding portrait of a broken family suffering the consequences of secrets, lies and violence. Petra, a fatherless young woman, embarks on a search that leads her to Jaume, a famous artist and a powerful, ruthless man (remarkably portrayed by 77-year old Joan Botey in his debut film role). Told in non-chronological chapters with headings that both reveal and conceal key plot developments, Rosales’ film is playful and haunting, shot with a slowly drifting camera that further heightens the narrative’s ever-present tension.
