Overview

Julio Medem directed this romantic Spanish drama with location scenes in Finland. School children Ana Sara Valiente and Otto Peru Medem are brought together when a paper airplane flown from a window by Otto unites Ana's mother Olga Maru Valdiviesio with Otto's father Alvaro Nancho Novo. After this encounter, Olga and Alvaro fall in love -- with the result that Alvaro leaves Otto's German mother Ula Beate Jensen. To be near Ana, Otto begins living with Alvaro and Olga. Ana believes that Otto harbors the soul of her dead father. As adolescents, Otto Fele Martinez and Ana Najwa Nimri share a kiss over a book opened to a passage about the Arctic Circle, and they often sleep together. Otto is grief-stricken by the death of his mother -- partially due to his leaving her for Ana. Shown at 1998 film festivals Venice, Toronto.

    Changed my life. Opened my eyes to love.

    The director captures all the little emotions and nuances involved in love from the love of the father for Otto to the relationship between ana and otto. Also does well in mixing chance into the destiny of love. Awesome movie.
