The weathered and weary Amador returns to his home in the mountains of rural Galicia after serving prison time on charges of arson. Ostracized by all except his aged mother, Amador resumes his quiet life of agricultural labour, simple routines, and heavy silences, until a chance encounter with a local woman seemingly puts him on the path to salvation – or devastation. Magnificently shot on 16mm by Mauro Herce, FIRE WILL COME culminates in one of the year’s truly grand finales.

Oliver Laxe, Spain, France, Luxembourg, 2019, 85 min. Gallegan spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Amador Arias, Benedicta Sánchez, Inazio Abra, Elena Fernandez, David de Poso.
