"3.3. Battle in Heavenissa elämässään epäonnistunut pariskunta kidnappaa perhetuttunsa lapsen, joka kuolee vahingossa kaappauksen aikana. Muutenkin onnetonta elämää elävien ihmisten meno ylittää tämän myötä tilanteen, josta ei ole paluuta. Pariskunnan mies yrittää etsiä pakotietä seksistä ja uskonnosta, mutta pystyykö mikään antamaan hänelle todellista iloa, kun hän on aivan täysin kuollut tunnetasolla? Lähestulkoon kaikki hänen tekemisensä on pelkkää tyhjää tuij"

" 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"

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
