If you’re looking for a fast-paced, action-packed thriller, then this film isn’t for you. In this stunning and gorgeous – but unhurried – drama, Martin arrives in a remote Mexican village to study and record a dying, ancient indigenous language. He finds the last two speakers of the language, but they refuse to talk to each other because of a 50-year grudge. As Martin starts a love affair with one of the locals, he digs deeper and deeper into the mystery until finally, a complicated love story comes to light. Who are the star-crossed lovers and what becomes of them? You’ll have to watch to the end to find out!
