Ibanez uses the island's liminal fringes and barren interiors to trace his heroine's state of mental withdrawal.

Anton Bitel

Hierro is unquestionably a film of consummate craft and eerie beauty. Give Ibanez a less shopworn screenplay, and one suspects that his next feature will do more than just skilfully coast.
