The Secret Life of Words (La vida secreta de las palabras)

Rated NR 112 minutes 2006

An isolated spot in the middle of the sea. An oil rig, where all the workers are men, on which there has been an accident. A solitary, mysterious woman who is trying to forget her past is brought to the rig to look after a man who has been temporarily blinded. A strange intimacy develops between them, a link full of secrets, truths, lies, humor and pain, from which neither of them will emerge unscathed and which will change their lives forever. This is a film about the weight of the past; about the sudden silence that is produced before a storm; about 25 million waves, a Spanish cook and a goose. And, above all else, it's about the power of love even in the most terrible circumstances.
