A Esmorga

The film documents a tense and intense 24 hours in the lives of three middle-aged drinking buddies. During this period, the men blaze a trail of destruction, of neglected and repressed sex, closing doors and burning bridges: as if they had no intention of ever returning, as if they knew they were purposefully walking towards their own self-destruction.

Reviews

“Diego Romero Suarez-Llanos’s photography does a fine job of rendering the rich tones and textures of Galicia, which seems to be composed of darkness, rain, moss and stone in varying quantities. The atmospherics are strong, but it’s the performances, from actors who, Elejalde apart, are all Galician, that make the film.”
