Ibiza, the early nineties, Jo is a 25-year-old music composer. He has come over from Berlin and wants to be part of the nascent electronic music revolution, ideally by getting a job first as a DJ in the new nightclub on the island, Amnesia. Martha has been living alone in her house facing the sea for forty years. One night Jo knocks on her door. Her solitude intrigues him. They become friends even as the mysteries around her accumulate: that cello in the corner she refuses to play, the German language she refuses to speak. As Jo draws her into his world of techno music, Martha puts everything she had previously lived by into question.

Directed by Barbet Schroeder in 2015, this Swiss-French drama depicts the relationship between a young man and an elegantly-aged woman who has lived for 40 years on a beautiful island off the Spanish coast.
What a nice and idyllic island it is.
I love its setting and techno music.

Beautiful setting - the ocean, shoreline and sun-drenched landscape of rustic Ibiza - even though the hero is a nightclub DJ, we don't see much of that scene. Powerful acting by a woman who has chosen to be a recluse; as she opens up in a friendship with the hero she explains why.

This is what modern film can be. I firmly believe the library could obtain fewer Marvel comic book movies and a few more small but meaningful films such as this one. Amnesia is visually attractive and the actors are excellent at their craft. The story is profound and thought provoking long after viewing.
