Winner of the Golden Lion (“Best Film”) Award at Venice Film Festival. Wealthy, middle-aged Armando (Alfredo Castro) lures young men to his home with money. He doesn’t want to touch, only watch from a strict distance. Armando’s first encounter with street thug Elder (Luis Silva) is violent, but this doesn’t discourage the lonely man’s fascination with the tough handsome teenager. Financial interest keeps Elder visiting him regularly and an unexpected intimacy emerges. However, Armando’s haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ultimate act of affection on Armando’s behalf.

Critics Consensus: From Afar is narratively elliptical to a fault, but for patient viewers willing to allow the story to unfold at its own unhurried pace, the end result is its own absorbing reward.
