I keep seeing this film at my local video store, but am not sure about it. Anyone tell me if it's any good, or not?

I liked it, found it engaging, mystical and very touching. The Spanish director Medem is an original talent, deserves to be better known.; see also Tierra, Red Squirrel, Vacas, and Sex and Lucia. I know Gimferrer, Spanish expert here, prefers his other films to Lovers of the Arctic Circle, but i'd recommend giving it a try.

I don't like it much. The main roles are spot on(Nimri and Martinez) but I didn't like the plot much. from Julio Medem Vacas is the best followed by Sex And Lucia, Tierra and The Red Squirl.

Julio madem said that after that he needed to do a more cheerful film after that and he did Lucia Y El Sxo, again a great Paz Vega! beautifull colors and images there!

I personally liked this film a lot. The plot was very "Romeo and Juliet" see for yourself.

This film is really great! Though may be described as some kind of "Romeo and Juliet" story, the way director handles it makes this film truly exceptional. Definitely film which stays in your mind for some (long) time. Recommended.
