Los amantes del Círculo Polar

We were a bit fed up with all those Spanish films in which sex and football are the only subjects in the plot. However, there is always an exception that proves the rule.
Otto and Ana both have names that read the same both ways. But that is only the first coincidence of a big list full of them that accompany the two main characters from the beginning until the end of the film, from their chidhood to their youth. A mixture of melancholy and happiness, tragedy and hope, tears and smiles... that can't leave anyone indifferent.
