2011, Gabriel Velázquez, Spain, 84 min.
With Jesús Nieto, Carolina Morocho
The title refers to the film’s wintry setting and, metaphorically, to the emotional depths that lie hidden beneath the visible surface of its teenage characters. Three plotlines intersect along the lonely banks of the Tormes river in Salamanca. Mauri, orphaned by a car crash, seeks to recover a ring that belonged to his late parents. Rebecca, dumped in a Catholic boarding school by her absent parents, thinks she’s pregnant. Simon and Jo live wild and free in an abandoned boathouse. Adults never appear in this spare, subtle, and intensely focused film. In Spanish with English subtitles. HDCAM video. (MR)
