Mexican auteur Carlos Reygadas (Silent Light, SFF 2008) cast himself and his wife as the lead actors in this brutally honest examination of the breakdown of an open marriage.

What happens when idealistic notions of sexual freedom intersect with basic human emotions such as desire and jealousy? That’s the question asked by Carlos Reygadas in his first feature since winning Best Director at Cannes in 2012 for Light After Darkness (aka Post Tenebras Lux). The always-provocative Reygadas goes the whole distance here by casting himself and wife Natalia López in the central roles of Juan and Esther. What this experiment delivers is an unflinchingly honest look at a “free” marriage being put to the test when Esther commences an affair with Phil, a gringo ranch hand. Punctuated by scenes of incredible natural beauty, Our Time is a human journey that’s not easily forgotten. Winner, Best Director, Havana Film Festival.

A soul-searching work of scorching honesty that functions both as an anatomy of love and marriage, and as an evisceration of masculinity.
Giovanni Marchini Camia, Sight & Sound
