If this seems a little thin for a two-hour movie, believe me, it is, even with all that portentous music trying to make it seem momentous.

It's restrained, clever and unique enough, quite heroic without being pedantic.

Because the story is short, the action that's missing is replaced with initiation ceremonies, ritual dances, folklore, and pseudo spiritual digressions that diminish the already minimal interest in the adventure. [Full Review in Spanish]

... the most interesting phenomenon in this otherwise gaseous enterprise is Owen Roizman's almost three-dimensional landscape photography in 70mm.
