I'd first heard of Tioseco and Bohinc's murder from a short film by José Luís Guerín, in which Bohinc featured. It was already a haunting reference, which made this film all the more immediate. It's not very cinematic but of a piece with Diaz's other films. Romulo is pained like the Ancient Mariner at his inability to fully do justice to his late friend. A film that sparkles in an almost chilling fashion.
