Nuestro tiempo

Only on Monday November 11 with English subs at 9:00 pm.

The complexity of love relationships is a recurring theme in the work of renowned Mexican director Carlos Reygadas. In his films – like Japón, Stellet licht, Post tenebras lux – he uses much visual, at times magical flair to show how unhappy love, jealousy and estrangement can knock people off-kilter. His latest revolves around the same topic, though the story is more intimate and immersive due to the lead roles being played by Reygadas and his wife Natalia López themselves.

Juan, a poet, and his wife run a bull ranch somewhere in rural Mexico. When Esther hits it off really well with Phil, horse trainer and her husband's friend, Juan, not immediately concerned, actually encourages her to start an affair with Phil. They are in an open marriage after all. She actually does so, though she won't tell much about it, much to Juan's frustration. Gradually, uncertainty, jealousy, and mistrust start overshadowing his rational thinking.
