4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 24 Mar 2008
This review is from: Lovers of the Arctic Circle [DVD] (1998) (DVD)
Eight years old Otto (Peru Medem), is playing with a ball one day after school in the playground, and the ball gets away and into the woods, Otto chases after it, and meets Ana (Sara Valiente). He feels in love with her, and then the story goes back in a flashback to show how Ana got there in the first place. This is the in first of the many chance meetings these two.
Ana's father has passed away, and she runs away, and gets lost in the woods, and meets Otto, in her eys she thinks this is the her late father back from the dead, as a little boy. Then in one of these coincidences, Otto throws paper airplanes, and Ana picks one of up, and gives it to her mother, telling her it is from "that man" which is Otto's father. Otto's parents are dirvoced, and Ana's Mother is widowed. And then they meet and fall in love, and then Otto and Ana becomes step-brother and sister, and then lovers as teenagers. Then as adults they become separated, when one of thier step-parents dies, and Otto finds himself gulity of it, and runs away, and ............. well let's just say I will not give it away for you, ..........I urge you to watch this movie.
This film requires that you surrender any notions of the feasibility of the actual plot, but it is nonetheless an enchanting tale. If you enjoyed "Sliding Doors" or if you believe in fate, you'll particularly enjoy this. The film is beautiful, with indelible images that still haunted my memory months after I first saw this film.
The end (and, in appropriate "circular" fashion, the beginning) will leave you mystified and breathless.
