***Tom Santilli reviewed this film as part of his coverage of the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. Here is what he had to say at the time:
A movie that is sure to split its audience, Tim Roth gives a wonderfully detached performance as Neil, a man of few words to say the least. On an island vacation with his sister (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and her two grown kids, they receive bad news from home. Neil stays back after losing his passport, and begins to make one curious decision after another. Here's a film - written and directed by Michel Franco - that doesn't spoon-feed its audience, and in fact gives them no information at all for long stretches. The results can be maddening, but it's never uninteresting. Only in the film's final moments are Neil's true motivations revealed, and for me, it made the investment worth every penny.
Run Time: 1 hour 23 minutes.
Starring: Tim Roth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Iazua Larios, Samuel Bottomley, Henry Goodman.
Written and Directed by Michel Franco ("New Order," "April's Daughter," "Chronic," "After Lucia").
