Amador Coro has been condemned for having provoked a fire. When he gets out of prison, nobody is waiting for him. He returns to his home town, a small village hidden in the mountains of rural Galicia, to live with his mother, Benedicta, and their three cows. Life goes by, following the rhythm of nature. Until one night when a fire starts to devastate the region.
Strikingly beautiful, meditative, elusive.
Wendy Ide, Screen Saily
Occupies an almost uncategorizable cinematic realm.
Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine
Breathtaking... An elegant, metaphorical fusion of physical and mental landscapes.
Azadeh Jafari, Cinema Scope
One of the ten best films of 2019... Laxe's sparse, ambiguous character study of a Galician arsonist proves as withholding as its reticent protagonist.
James Quandt, Artforum
Mesmeric... confirms all the poised formal promise of You Are All Captains and Mimosas, while bringing greater depth and generosity of human observation to his rich, abundant mood-harvesting.
Guy Lodge, Variety
