...this movie is very good directed. The shots, the color palette and the music(or lack off)interacting with the Sea s sound on and off are all items precisely crafted here making ordinary looks naturally. Yes, is a "suave" ongoing story, that in reality is more than one at the same time; however, the plot is not too focused in all these other potential stories, but for the wiser watcher, are all there: love stories (though love is not strong enough);growing; the economic problems in small towns; migration; lack of youth with enough guts to take control of these areas; struggling businesses; stubborn people et all.

All that occur in a lovely little vacation town besides the Sea.
