The movie started with Lucia talking to his depressed boyfriend, Lorenzo. Worried, Lucia decided to go home only to find an empty apartment. Lucia was trying to find Lorenzo when she received a phone call from a police officer and saw a suicide note from Lorenzo. Being afraid to hear the worst thing about his boyfriend, Lucia hangs up the phone.
She then decided to go to the mysterious island that Lorenzo always talked about. In that Island, Lucia met Carlos and Elena who were also refugees on their personal tragedies. The story then goes back six years ago. The two then decided to live together and be a couple. Lorenzo and Belen somehow had a relationship. And all of the things Lorenzo were doing, he writes it down for his next novel. Lucia, on the other hand, had been secretly reading his novel, believing all of which was just fictional.
One night, Belen invites Lorenzo to their house. That night, terrible thing happened. As Lorenzo and Belen were having sex, Luna knocked the door and was killed by the family dog. This tragic incident caused everyone to be depressed. It doesn't finish, it falls in a hole.
And the story starts again halfway. I noticed that this line is also the sequence of the story. Noticed that when Lucia fell in a hole, the story flashbacked to the beginning of it. Furthermore, I also noticed that the movie starts in the middle of the story and also ends in the middle of it. It was surprising that the dog was clever enough to understand and even took the instruction literally. Some of the symbolisms that I noticed in the film are the lighthouse, the moon, the sun, and the hole.
For me, the lighthouse somehow represent as a guide for Lucia. There was a scene when he was trying to follow Carlos but lost track on him, when she saw the lighthouse, it somehow served her as a guide where Carlos was. It can also represent a phallic symbol. The moon also represents the lust and sexual desires of each of the characters.
Noticed when every time a couple would have sex, the moon would be shown. The sun, on the other hand, represents a new beginning of each of the character since most of them are trying to escape from their personal tragedies. Lastly, the hole somehow represents how each of them was trying to escape from their tragic past.
Because every time they enter the hole, they can go back in time even if it is just an imagination. And Carlos also hid on that hole in the last part of the story when he was trying to escape from Elena. All in all, the movie is a great to watch. Not only because of its unique love story but also the twist or the sequence of the story that would make you confused.
