The memorial flowers left on highway crash sites by the bereaved provoke in us a flash of quickly forgotten reflection as we speed by. With their second feature after 2010's In 80 Days, Jose Mari Goenaga and Jon Garano have chosen instead to pull over and build a gently melancholic story around one such bunch of flowers. Despite the fears raised by its deceptively banal title, Flowers is an emotionally precise, subtle and quietly gripping exploration of the romance and remembrance that they evoke.
