(Spanish language film with English subtitles)

Juan is a wealthy industrialist who has chosen to live with his wife and two children away from the trappings of wealth and the city. Yet isolation in this superficially idyllic rural landscape seems to have brought little peace to his world. Juan’s marriage to Natalia is suffering under the strain of sexual tedium, the banal rigours of bringing up young children and living in a community where he is clearly an outsider. The morality of family life is further complicated by Juan’s post-colonial Mexican ethnicity and position as an employer and elite landowner in a country with an increasingly divergent wealth divide. From Carlos Reygadas’ (Battle in Heaven, Silent Light) who won Best Director at Cannes 2012. It’s a gorgeous allusive masterpiece examining marriage, poverty, class, gender, our place in nature and how evil lives with us in the most intimate and ordinary of places. It’s a wonder.

This film is presented in 4:3.
