Beautiful picture. Deep grandfather-father-son currents told from native lands. Calming, but emotional.

The lack of dialogue makes you pay attention to what is happening between the main characters. This film delivers, but in a completely different way. Lovely.

This film is almost like a documentary but is not - it has a story, one of father and son bonding. This storyline is pretty thin, though. However, the water scenery is great so if you like the outdoor and enjoy watching simple life, this is a film for you. Spanish with English subtitles.

Moving beauty of a film documenting the loss and love of a failed marriage. There is a search for meaning, a quest to rediscover one's manhood unencumbered by a woman's influence. Any hombre who's been stung by the arrow of retracted love will identify with this deep soul connecting with his son. Soft and moving, pure, beautiful, independent and solid. Modern life shows through no matter what paradise you may inhabit.

It's a professional audio, video version of lengthy home video with little subject to aim (at time missed) at.

The one star rating is for the nice graphic shots.

It lists several film winnings. Their benchmarks must be at the ground floor level of independent film producers in US (not counting Hollywood).

People better watches National Geographic's, Kultur's DVDs cover a similar objective.
