Battle in Heaven
Directed by Carlos Reygadas
Battle in Heaven
Cast entirely with non-professionals, Battle in Heaven tells the story of Marcos, the middle-aged chauffeur of Ana, daughter of a Mexican general. Marcos is the only member of Ana's household who knows she leads a double life. Although a child of Mexico's political elite, Ana amuses herself by working as a prostitute in a high-end brothel. But, Marcos also has a secret. He and his wife kidnapped a baby for ransom and the infant died in their custody. When he confesses to Ana, a bond of secrecy consecrated by the flesh unites them. As the police draw closer, Ana urges Marcos to turn himself in, but he seeks redemption from a higher power
" Since premiering at Cannes the movie has become notorious for its shocking, emphatically unerotic sex scenes, though it's equally notable for its striking visual conceits and small moments of intense feeling." -Chicago Reader
"Promiscuously inhabiting several planes at once, Reygadas's restless inquisition may already be this year's movie to beat." - Village Voice
