Review

Watching the Spanish film Lovers of the Arctic Circle is like slowly falling into a yearning and melancholy dream. Two children--Ana and Otto--meet and instantly know that they''re soul mates. Their parents--one of whom is divorced, the other a widow--also meet and fall in love. Now that they share the same house, Ana and Otto (by now teenagers) become secret lovers. But troubles intervene: Otto''s mother dies, for which Otto blames himself and his father, and he leaves Ana and becomes a airplane pilot. Though their paths cross again and again throughout their lives, they keep missing each other until the power of their love finally draws them together. But the hypnotic power of Lovers of the Arctic Circle lies in how the movie unfolds, deftly shifting back and forth between the different perspectives of Ana and Otto. The gradual interweaving of their lives accumulates into a metaphysical swoon; rarely is the notion of romantic destiny made so heartfelt and so mysterious at the same time. --Bret Fetzer

One of the most acclaimed and beloved Spanish films in recent years, Lovers of the Arctic Circle charts the remarkable destinies of Ana (Sex and Lucia''s Najwa Nimri) and Otto (Open Your Eyes'' Fele Martinez), friends since childhood whose fates intersect over the years, leading to a stunning conclusion in which destiny and romance collide. A beautiful and haunting love story in the tradition of Amelie and Run Lola Run, this groundbreaking film from director Julio Medem (Tierra, Sex and Lucia) finally arrives on DVD to enchant and delight anyone who believes in the power of love.
