Synopsis

A painter from the big city goes to a remote canyon to commit suicide. To reach some calmness he stays at the farmstead of Ascen, an old religious woman. Although only a few words are spoken, love grows.

Our take

In his most remarkable feature debut, controversial auteur Carlos Reygadas (Post Tenebras Lux, Our Time) dazzled the Cannes Film Festival with Japon: a film—shot in 16mm CinemaScope—that travels with its viewer on a poetic, psychogeographical journey through Mexico’s landscapes.
