    This film is something special. It provokes sense of loneliness, abandonment as well as hope at the same time. I have never seen a movie like this one and to be able to watch it, it feels like I've found something I truly strive for in the world of film. It is so realistic and profound that you could directly link to the man's emotional experience. A beautiful sorrowful film.

    Their use of multiple formats-including digital video, Super 8, and 35-millimeter slides-gives the movie the texture of a worn scrapbook.

    The visual collage retains a consistent melancholy, resulting in an experience that's both deeply affecting and-since José never actually appears on-camera-utterly detached.

    Has a stirring elemental feel and constitutes filmmaking at its most basic and transfixing.
