Writer/director Reygadas (Post Tenebras Lux, Battle in Heaven, Japón) cast non-professionals for his rugged yet graceful film set in an out-of-time Mennonite community in present-day Mexico. Eschewing a musical score, Reygadas withholds judgment on a farmer’s extramarital affair, which continues even as his wife acknowledges and processes the betrayal.

In Mennonite Low German with English subtitles

A film by Carlos Reygadas
