Editorial Reviews

In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Farrel asks the captain of the freighter he works on for permission to go ashore once they reach the port of Ushuaia, the southernmost town of Argentina. Farrel wants to return to his birthplace and see if his mother is still alive. For the past twenty years he has worked as a seaman. He drinks to oblivion, pays the women he sleeps with, has no friends. Having reached the cluster of snow- covered houses where he grew up, Farrel discovers his mother is indeed still living but someone else has become part of the family. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Interview with Director Lisandro Alonso (in a text booklet), Stills Gallery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Fourth Film by Young Argentine Filmmaker August 24, 2013
Format:DVD
Had the great pleasure of seeing Lisandro Alonso's films at the Flaherty Seminar a few year ago. They are without question challenging and those who have only known traditional narrative or Hollywood films will either open their minds to the experience or reject them out of hand. This is not a spoon fed story giving you all the answers. It is slow, messy & unresolved, like life. Beautifully shot & edited, I cannot forget my emotions at the last shot. Don't read other reviews unless you want spoilers.

1.0 out of 5 stars absurd November 13, 2012
By .fgd
Format:DVD
This film dares to tread a fine line in depicting bleakness of human existance. It is too easy for bleak to mean dull and for the viewer dull can be infectious. Nevertheless I persevered with this film until the end because its ludicrudnous amused me and I could not quite believe the blank canvas being painted would NOT melt over into some rhytmn / some crux of the matter. But cheat me the film did.

The large ocean vessels of today require no more than a crew of maintanance men to sail the high seas. The camera pans on its janitors extremely mundane activities. Farrell leaves this perfectly monitored existance for some god-forsaken town in the middle of nowhere covered in snow. There are a few scenes of Farrell masticating ; pottering and taking nips out of a bottle. The most exciting thing he does is a very short spot of spying There is an elderley man who appears to know him. We listen in as he discusses inanities on the phone. ( ie: " don't forget to round the sheep up") Farrell barely talks except for an exchange with his senile old mother. The elderley man knows the family history and tantalisingly alludes to some travesty but never spills the beans. Meanwhile there is a mystery girl in her teens who is more lobotomised than Farrell and withdrawn.
This film was in dire need of flash-backs, gossip or confession. But the director choose to leave the viewers dangling. It is not unlike a jazz musician who is so carried away with abstractions that he ceases to play a common musical language and forgets about the audience.

Why is the film called Liverpool? Because the girl fingers a plate of metal letters that spells Liverpool in the very last scene. Farrell must have picked it up when his ship docked in the far-flung UK. .
