The film starts out giving forecasts of doom and gloom with solar storms. After 10 12 minutes of character introduction our couple appear to be the only two humans alive, as everything is burnt to a crisp. They happened to be underwater at the time. As Dídac (Ibrahim Mané) becomes an adult, he impresses the 10 year senior Alba (Rachel Hurd-Wood) by getting the tractor working as they ride 128 km to Barcelona. Here the story changes, but really doesn't pick up.

The movie had bland characters and seemed to have lacked a theme. While it was not unpleasing or difficult to watch, it wasn't overly entertaining either. Listed as a "horror" film, I failed to see the horror in the movie. More like a sci-fi drama. Based on a novel by Manuel de Pedrolo "Mecanoscrit del Segon Origen", the most famous science-fiction novel in Catalan literature.

Guide: Brief sex and nudity. Large English subtitles.

Note to sci-fi writers and fans: Gasoline and diesel fuel have short shelf lives (gas about a month, diesel 3-6 months) unless fuel stabilizers are added to them.
