Silent Light

Yesterday I saw the most beautiful film by Mexican filmmaker Carlos Reygadas. Silent Light takes place in a Mennonite community in Chihuahua, Mexico and tells the story of a married man who falls in love with another woman. Reygadas' slow lingering camera allows us to appreciate the exquisite camerawork and to take in each scene without feeling rushed onto the next. The movie is in Plattdeutsch (aka Low-German). This was my first time hearing a native North American German Speaker - very interesting. Silent light is at the Film Forum in NY for one more week - catch it if you can!
