After murdering his wife, Horatio and his lover run away to a cabin in the country. Horatio is consumed by guilt and memories, while his lover, Lucretia, will question on whether she will remain by his side or not.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A man and his girlfriend flee to a country cottage when they inadvertently kill his wife when caught by her in the act. What ensues is a very dry study of guilt and despair as the pair realize their relationship will not survive this. A little too bleak all around that lets the film eventually succumb to boredom.
En regardant le film, j'ai pensé à plusieurs critiques possibles :
- L'an dernier, j'ai vu deux films mexicains qui m'ont botté le cul : "Workers" et "After Lucia". "January" n'est pas le troisième.
- La scène où Lucretia casse un par un les 33 tours de Horacio est pratiquement insoutenable.
- Il y a chez Mubi une complaisance envers les films lents et contemplatifs qui, à la longue, peut agacer.
Purtroppo si è costretti a dare almeno una stella, ma questo film per me non lo merita, sono contenta di leggere che altri l'hanno trovato lento, a me pure piacciono i film lenti, ma questo! Enero era imbarazzante. non era credibile a causa degli attori, tutto quel buio all'inizio. Pretenzioso.Noioso, tanto che lei se ne è accorta e ha preferito tagliare la corda.
Watching this movie was a traumatizing experience, something like going back to school. I strongly recommend you skip this one, but in case there are some extremely curious, i advise them to watch only the first twenty minutes (cause nothing really happens from then on) - any minute after that is pure masochism...
