This is a very special film, but one that is so hard to describe in words. The plot - as it is - concerns the melancholy journey of a merchant seaman returning home to his village in the isolated and snowy interior of Tierra del Fuego. Somehow, this quiet, almost wordless film really gets under you skin and pulls you in. Stark and beautiful, Liverpool is a film to experience - and one tha twill stay with you long after viewing.
Saw this a two or three years ago at the London Film Festival and loved it. So glad it has finally been released - and in a great looking edition with some nice extras (a new short film by the director, and an interesting - but brief - piece to camera by the director).
