Nuestro Cine: Finding Andres

There are occasions in our lives when we run away from our mistakes and try to escape the consequences of our actions. But what happens when we decide to confront those situations after trying to avoid them for many years?

This is the situation faced by Andres, the protagonist in the Chilean film "La Vida de los Peces" ("The Life of Fish"). Santiago Cabrera acts as Andres, a writer who returns to his homeland of Chile after spending a decade working in Europe. At a party he bites the bullet to face old friends he abandoned due to tragedy and a certain special someone he can avoid no longer.

"Peces" is a highly-charged and emotional drama directed by Matias Bize that has gained critical recognition in several countries. This month the movie was the only non-European film to win one of the top prizes at the Portuguese film festival. Such an honor goes along with winning Spain's prestigious Goya film prize earlier this year as the top film in the Spanish-speaking world.

The following is the trailer to "Peces" with English subtitles. Enjoy!
