"Lovers of the Arctic
Directed by Julio Medem
Two lovers who meet as
youths are separated as adults, but the power of their romance comes close
to reuniting them many times as their existences converge on a circular
path over the years. A seductive fable of what we all wish true love to
be. "The graceful jumping about in time and space may recall the
early work of Alain Resnais, but the theme and ambience are Spanish to the
core; Medem charts the crisscrossing destinies of the two leads with
passion as well as lyricism" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader).
Spanish with English subtitles. 108 minutes.
