When Gustav Holst wrote the suite The Planets almost a century ago, he did it while convinced of the existence of a musical harmony between the Earth and all the different planets, in a tone game as decisive as it was imperceptible for the human eye. Maybe the fact that Sandro Aguilar introduces two movements of this piece in his latest film can shed some light on the particularly enigmatic short film he made, even in the context of a filmography as unknown as his.

Two kids play in a lab. A woman takes care of them unwillingly. The little girl whispers in her ear: “My mom has been dead for three years now”. But this and other details that make for a possible plot –a game of deceit, absence, and seized spaces– are minimum against the real core of the film: that unstoppable harmony of elements that moves forward by erasing the little human and anecdotic drama. Holst’s music grows and grows as it takes us to the finale dragging the action to some other place, an unfathomable space filled with serenity; a place where the only possible and satisfactory outcome is the image of a segment of mist that wanders off into the night.
