category and today we’re here to have a little chat about the whole thing and to share some great photos from the whole thing.
The movie centers on Juan and his young urban family who live in the countryside of Mexico. There, they enjoy and suffer a world that understands life in a different way. Juan wonders if those worlds are complementary or, truly, they fight unconsciously to eliminate one another.
That’s the official synopsis part, and I guess it’s difficult to understand what these photos are about. Except the great nature, of course.
But, maybe this description that Reygadas gave us will help you – he has described this project as a work where “reason will intervene as little as possible, like an expressionist painting where you try to express what you’re feeling through the painting rather than depict what something looks like”.
One thing is for sure, visually – Reygadas deserves Palme D’Or.
