Spain, 2001, 128', color, Spanish with Turkish subtitles
Spanish director Julio Medem’s fifth film is a passionate, stylishly directed and frequently erotic meditation on love, loss, sex, fantasy and the nature of fiction versus reality. The story details the complex triangular relationship between Lorenzo (Ulloa), a writer given to rehashing his own life for his novels; his girlfriend Lucía (Vega), who retreats to the island location of one of his novels in order to reflect on their history together; and Elena (Nimri), a woman who, unbeknownst to him, had Lorenzo’s child after a holiday romance.
