This mostly silent, gay-themed Mexican movie is an artful look at relationships and sex between men, and is filmed in the breathtaking surroundings of the National Autonomous University in Mexico City.

Watching this film felt as if Julian Hernandez has revealed his motives for making films: to interpret/re-interpret, visualize/re-visualize the complex, "understudied" love between two men. This is like a derivative, re-modernized version of UN CHANT D'AMOUR but to a degree more primitive and mythological than Un Chant. A companion piece to RAGING SUN...SKY Can't seem to find A THOUSAND CLOUDS OF PEACE... Any links?
it might not be easy to watch if you do not like long, almost-silent films. However, for me, the film was interesting. At first, the long sequences seem superfluous, but with the lack of much dialogue, they begin to add up, bridging over the lack of words. Overall, it is enjoyable, though I was confused over the ending. Recommended.
