‘Do they leave us here, or do they throw us away?’

A film about the elderly patients in a Chilean nursing home could make for depressing viewing, but this contemplative, painterly work has far more to say about life than it does death. As we watch the residents struggling with simple tasks, we also observe their patience and tenacity. And when the resident radio DJ plays a recording of the ocean over the air, the familiar sound has a thrilling intensity.
