A raw and involving drama with truly brilliant performances from the three leads. Naomi Watts is especially good here in what is probably her best performance. The non-linear still feels completely cohesive and reinforces the trauma felt by the characters who are thrown together by the central "event". It's interesting how different Inarritu's last couple of films have been to his earlier work.
I can't say that I loved the nonlineal arrangement of the plot, sometimes I felt that Alejandro was trying too hard to make a difficult film to watch. Of course it's interesting to see the story being build part by part, extract by extract, and at the end have the "full soup", but that aspect can be annoying some times. Despite the intense story the film fails in some "main goals".
8,5/10 Un niveau d'acteurs encore très haut. Ce film est l'un de mes drames préférés. Il m'a fait passer par plusieurs sentiments, c'est exactement ce que j'attends du cinéma. Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, je vous conseille Amour chienne du même réalisateur. Plus violent mais il prend aux tripes.
