Stellet licht

Carlos Reygadas Mexic, 2007

paul oram's rating of the film Silent Light

Brilliant, beautiful, acting stripped down to pure emotion. I wonder though what would truely happen in circumstances such as these in a deeply religious community - has this been replaced with a more generic sense of the spiritual? If so it worked for this non-religious viewer. But these are Mennonites playing themselves so I guess that answers my question. It certainly stays with you for a long time afterwards.
