Sitges Rotterdam


Often incomprehensible and generally indescribable, Sergio Caballero's feature debut, 'Finisterrae,' certainly has a sense of humor, but how much is meant to be taken seriously? Two Russian-speaking (dubbed) ghosts, in basic Halloween attire of white sheets with blacked-out eye holes, journey to Santiago de Compostela in the hopes of rejoining the living. Lensing by Eduard Grau ('A Single Man') looks incongruously splendid when paired with this bewildering procession of oddities. Rotterdam's Tiger prize was surely awarded out of sheer perversity, yet there's something undeniably compelling about so much bizarreness. Cult status is likely. Jay Weissberg - VARIETY .
