A beautiful, bewildering new film from one of the world’s great directors, this requires each viewer to find their own way through the stories that unfold and to experience it all with the fresh eyes of a child. At the centre of its non-linear plot are Juan and Natalia, a bickering middle-class couple with two adorable toddlers (Reygadas’ own). These tender, touching ‘home movies’ of meal times and parties showing the domestic nature of everyday life are interspersed with odd, more dramatic scenes with various local characters. Like a domestic David Lynch, Reygadas is a true original who links his experimental narrative approach to arresting imagery to create dreamlike films that are both apparently simple and deeply perplexing.
