This Spanish film is a brilliantly written romantic drama without any of the unsubtle, inauthentic adornments we have come to expect from the heavily-marketed rubbish that passes as romance these days.
Lovers of the Arctic Circle takes you on a journey of longing, heartache and love. You will fall in love with the two wonderful central characters. This is a film that will find its own niche somewhere in your heart.
This is the second film we have reviewed starring the talented Fele Martínez. He produced a superb performance in Tesis (1996).
Like we always recommend: don’t ruin surprises by reading spoilers or watching trailers. The following trailer, as usual, gives away far too much.
