Mexican director Carlos Reygadas' first film is a poetic, existential drama that explores life, death, truth and redemption on a journey through the rugged and unforgiving Mexican landscape. The film follows an unnamed, middle-aged artist (Alejandro Ferretis), who is tired and disillusioned with life in Mexico City. He travels to the countryside where he plans to kill himself. Here, he meets Ascen (Magdalena Flores), an old widow who lives by herself in the mountains, and he takes up lodging with her. Ascen is uneducated, but has a profound understanding of life's problems. Her ability to transcend them is far superior to that of the intellectual Ferretis; her limitless generosity and kindness help him find the will to live

"Diego and Blanca's married life is one of stultifying monotony enlivened only by long periods spent on the couch watching soap operas and an occasional episode of joyless sex. Diego's complaint is that life is clumsy. The pot-bellied, balding Diego is dominated by his wife, who is alternately scolding and effusively affectionate. He has no clue what to do when his daughter Katrina, from a previous marriage, seeks his help to escape a drug-addict boyfriend and Blanca refuses to let her live with them. Events conspire to lead Diego along an unexpectedly desperate path, and he soon loses his way"--Variety.com

En praktfull soloppgang, en stjernehimmels sakte overgang til solrik morgen. Bildet forflytter seg så til kjøkkenbordet, hvor mennonittene Jakob, Esther og deres barn nyter en stille frokost. Etter frokosten blir Jakob sittende igjen alene, og like etter bryter den voksne og stillferdige mannen ut i gråt. Jakob har forelsket seg i en annen kvinne og står overfor et fryktelig dilemma, hvor hans kroppslige ønsker blir satt på prøve mot hans religiøse overbevisning. I det puritanske samfunnet i utkanten av Chihuahua, Mexico, møter han liten forståelse hos dem han velger å betro seg til. Filmen fikk terningkast 4-6
