After first meeting in a fleeting chance encounter, Nicolas and Isabel cross paths again on a fortuitous evening when they find themselves sharing a table and late-night musings at a dinner party. As they reflect on art, love, and death, their undeniable attraction inevitably sparks a relationship. Impeccably cast, director Katina Medina Mora’s keenly sensitive sophomore effort steers clear of clichés and offers a warm and intimate portrait of an intensely magnetic relationship that begins with steamy encounters and intellectual digressions but soon dips below the surface and into the fears and insecurities that emanate from Nicolas’s crippling health issues and Isabel’s deep-seated grief over a family loss. Stunning underwater cinematography provides a refreshing respite from the building tension, as the characters dive for solace—and into each other’s inner truths. Above all, the film is a poetic tale that sensually captures the delights and perils of surrendering to true intimacy.
