Between Sea and Land

98 minutes 2016

Former child actor Manolo Cruz scripted and stars in this 2016 Colombian drama, playing an impoverished young man whose body is painfully twisted by an incurable neuromuscular disorder. Dependent on a machine that uses electrical impulses to treat his contractions, he lies bedridden in his shack on a Caribbean inlet, barely able to glimpse the sea outside. The character's scenes with his mother (Vicky Hernandez) and the next-door-neighbor he adores (Viviana Serna) are engrossing in their unfussy realism, as Cruz (who dropped 44 pounds for the role) uses the tiniest of movements to suggest the red-blooded man trapped inside the infirm body. Carlos del Castillo directed. In Spanish with subtitles.
