Film by Carlos Reygadas, “Silent Light”   4 comments


Wow! Mexican director Carlos Reygadas’ film “Silent Light” is one of my new favorites. It is stark, austere with the most amazing sound and light. He allows sound its time with out the chatter of dialogue and other noise intruding. The sound of water lapping while children are bathed outdoors, the sounds of crickets, cows, a combine in the field,  all amongst the charged, but outwardly silent emotions happening in a family. I cannot wait to see more of Reygadas’ work.

  1. I really really really loved this movie! We’ve seen one other by him that was pretty different but just as good.

  2. Glad you liked it as much as I did, Mom. You should see a Danish movie called Ordet. It was Reygadas’ major inspiration for Silent Light, and it’s one of my favorites. Carl Dreyer is the director’s name.
