Story


As we follow a mother (Jennifer Connelly) and her son (Cillian Murphy), we delve into a past marred by an accident that tears them apart.

She will become a renowned artist and healer, and he will grow into his own as a peculiar falconer who bears the marks of a double absence.

In the present, a young journalist (Melanie Laurent) will bring about an encounter between the two that puts the very meaning of life and art into question, so that we may contemplate the possibility of living life to its fullest, despite the uncertainties littering our paths.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..frozen landscape of ennui and the boring sadsacks populating it..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]
“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]
“..Claudia Llosa's vaguely magical-realist drama is stark and wintry in its otherworldly settings, but trying to figure out the point of it all feels more like being lost in a deep fog..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
