  • Review

    Two women spend a weekend together at the North Sea. One of them wants to return to her family in Argentina, whereas the other one plans to travel to the Caribbean. The latter crosses the Atlantic Ocean on a sailing vessel. Helena Wittmann’s debut feature proves the power of cinema that captures the changing movements of objects within the passage of time. Through outstanding cinematography and sound design, the film shows fissure between the two women and their drifting emotions. About half way through, the sea takes over the narration. Poetic images of the surrounding scenery replace the narration. When the film finally succeeds in ‘visualizing psychology’, it creates a new language that conveys the sound of the universe. Ever so calm and quiet, the film shows how we can travel across the sea and find a new sense of the world. [JANG Byungwon]
