BERLINALE 2020: LÚA VERMELLA BY LOIS PATIÑO
By Mónica Delgado
The film opens with a map of past times. The sea will be the character and element which orders and reorders the world, where a man will enter its waters, only to return to the land a series of lost bodies. Lúa vermella is a film where the sea is also a ghostly being, that frightens and feeds, shelters and repels, but above else, an entity whose matter could embody in its fury or depths, some passages of the characters of a town in their fight against the inevitable.
