Battle In Heaven in March
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of Battle In Heaven for 27th March 2006 priced at £19.99. Mexico City. Marcos, a chauffeur for a wealthy family, has kidnapped a young child for a ransom. But it dies in the care of him and his wife. As they contemplate the consequences of their actions, he shares his secrets and intimate moments with his boss’ sensual daughter, Ana, who’s a part-time prostitute. It’s a guilty burden that leads him towards a breakdown, murder and a pilgrimage to confess his sins.
Carlos Reygadas is one the young new auteurs of world cinema. Comparisons have been made with Tarkovsky and Bresson. Hailing from Mexico, he made a startling impact with Japón, which was both meditative and sensual in its tone. BATTLE IN HEAVEN is equally masterly in execution, at times surreal, at others shocking in its explicit depiction of sex, which was uncut for UK cinemas. He has also employed a cast of non-professional actors, which creates an improvisational atmosphere that is raw but enthralling. However, Reygadas produces stunning performances from Marcos Hernandez and Anapola Mushkadiz who has a fresh sassy confidence that promises an exciting future in acting. An unforgettable experience.
