Battle in Heaven depicts the spiritual emergency of an amoral man in Mexico City who turns to sex as a way out of his funk. When sex doesn't save him, he turns to an act of penance along with others in a religious procession. Can an amoral and violent man find redemption by just putting himself in a place where Divine love and forgiveness can reach him? Only God knows, thanks to the mysteries of grace.

"30.1. Tässä nuoret neidit käyvät vähän väliä putsaamassa sissijuustoja meksikolaishaisulin kyrvän nokasta ja Reygadasin tyylissä lähestyä elokuvaa meininki on aavistuksen samaa, mitä Haneken tai Seidlin varhaisemmassa tuotannossa; julmaa ja todentuntuista. Ei alleviivaavia tehosteita. Laajoja staattisia otoksia, puhetta ja liikkuvuuksia kuvan sisällä. Voimakasta ja pysäyttävää."

August 2012 Film Journal (16 movies items)

" August 14th - Carlos Reygadas for better or worse in Battle in Heaven uses an uncompromising technique of burying any emotional resonance or character depth in favor of aesthetical and intellectual pursuits. It is a bold move and one that pays off in with his aesthetical pursuits with an interesting ethereal and detached tone along with a haunting score. There are lots of evocative camera work and striking cinematography with some key scenes leaving me breathless. As the film unspools though"

I mean, I heard about the notorious non-simulated blowjob scene but I didn't know it was right from the start... Basically, it hit me like a train. What was this all about? On one hand, the scene is rather well made and definitely striking and the whole endeavour was absolutely bold. But, on the other hand, it was also really distracting because during the rest of the movie, I kept thinking again about what happened back there when I was supposed to focus on what was going on at that moment. A part from this, there was some kind of ” read more
