The structure of Before the Rain is more impressive than anything — revealing the cyclical nature of violence, how our conceptions of time and place become blurred when we are faced with brutality. There's a restaurant shooting scene that is one of the most horrifying moments I've ever seen on screen.
I have watched this movie because of its cinematographer manuel teran ... but I didnt like cinematography because some of scenes my expectations were different , for example in landscapes ,restaurant, birth of baby sheep scenes... there were so many close up shootings and it was boring for me , All of non professional actors were playing succesfully. But usage of camera bothered me . it is worth to watch.
Patchy. Some parts are quite compelling and promise something that other parts of the film fail to deliver. The English section is specially weak, both in story and delivery. I'm also not convinced by the conceit of the aberrant time structure to this - the circularity of events portrayed isn't confusing, it's just not up to making the point it hopes to. Good enough, but let down by it's sporadic weaknesses
Una película sobre los choques étnicos, el gesto humanitario de personas que van a contracorriente de sus circuitos sociales. "Antes de la lluvia" frente a esto provoca una dramática forzada, partiendo además de analogía sobre cómo el tiempo es tan cíclico como la historia de la violencia.
