Alberto, a Colombian migrant working illegally in London to pay for his mother's operation back home, becomes convinced that God has a destiny marked out for him. This is a taught, poignant thriller with a captivating supernatural twist.
After false reports of his demise put him and his work on the map, an artist decides to continue the charade by posing as his own brother. Soon, a reporter enters his life and has a profound effect on him.
I loved this soulful film, set on the beautiful island of Cyprus. It's difficult to write a film that is predominantly dialogue between two characters, but the film is so well written, with such insightful and clever banter between the two quirky leads, that it is an absolute pleasure to watch. I couldn't wait to see how their relationship evolved and how they developed throughout their road trip through the vast landscapes that Cyprus has to offer. The two leads played off each other brilliantly, and I look forward to seeing more from both of them. An amazing film, shot on a tiny budget, but with huge heart! It reminded me that life and love is complicated, but worth the chase!
