What is the solitude in the title ? The feeling of being left behind by those that once cared for you. A lack of state support. The slave cast into an eternity to guard his bounty. This film throws up many questions in a quiet and beautiful rumination on history, family and colonisation.
Beautiful Agit-Art. Most people in the world have boring or scrape-along lives with more chances of death, robbery than the hoped-for escape to a fun lifestyle, one which so many younger British, American and Europeans aspire to/dream of/expect. They/we should watch and think on these normal Venezuelans who REALLY face huge challenges. In Britain, most *can* expect peace. (Not all, so if you care, viewer, help them.)
Boring and depressive. A white wealthy director tells us that if you are black and poor in Venezuela you don't have any chance. And this is not because of a long history of slavery and colonialism. Wonder who's to blame.
If it wasn't for the media in Europe and US trashing Venezuela's government, ignoring context, this movie would pass totally unnoticed
Just suffused with melancholy and nostalgia. There are some wonderful metaphors for the current state of Venezuela: searching for gold and finding razor blades and being rocked passively to and fro on the waves and eddies of the ocean.
