An elliptical tale, constructed with brilliant simplicity unrelated to any concept of spectacularity, Florencia Romano’s suggestive debut feature proposes an essentialized reading to the bone of a narrative premise of science fiction: a mysterious solar eclipse leaves the earth in the dark for 15 days. Wanderings, literary references, tarot cards and phone calls go through that long “polar night” in which Julián, the young librarian protagonist of the film, will immerse himself in an existential crisis barely revealed. What if the sun does not come back?
