Following up on his 1998 art-house hit Lovers of the Arctic Circle, Julio Medem spins this audacious film about flesh and forgetting. Lucia (Paz Vega) is a young Madrid waitress who is devastated at the loss of her writer boyfriend Lorenzo (Tristan Ulloa). Hoping to flee her troubles, she seeks out a beautiful island paradise her dead lover often talked about. There she meets and befriends Carlos (Daniel Freyre) and Elena (Najwa Nimri) who are also refugees of personal tragedies. Unbeknownst to all of them, the three each have a connection to Lorenzo. Years previously, Elena had a spontaneous fling with Lorenzo on the same island on the beach. Nine months later, she bore his daughter, Luna (Silvia Llanos), but she was never able to track him down. Carlos' daughter, Belen (Elena Anaya), was unwittingly killed when the babysitter was more interested in bedding Lorenzo than tending to the child. As she learns more and more about her new friends, she recalls the book Lorenzo was writing just before his death. Soon the lines between fact and fiction begin to slip away. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. - Jonathan Crow (allmovie.com)
