Review
Johan is the head of a family in a Mennonite community in northern Mexico. However, he goes against the law of both God and men by falling in love with another woman and, although he is honest with his wife about the affair, his actions create conflict in their otherwise serene and tranquil existence. An enlightening and engaging exploration of moral and spiritual crises, Carlos Revgadas' poetic film slowly weaves an intricate and contemplative path on the way to its exquisite finale.
