Mexico's most daring filmmaker, Carlos Reygadas (Japón, Silent Light), creates layered, complex films in which even seemingly minor actions become revelations about human relationships. Here, he takes on the charged topic of love and sex in the lives of Juan and Ester, an educated, internet-savvy, artistic couple (played by Reygadas and his real-life spouse Natalia López) who raise fighting bulls. The human ecosystem of their ranch—extended family, servants, and ranch hands—is absorbingly rendered in Reygadas's rich and innovative cinematic language. Juan favors open marriage and encourages his wife to have other relationships. But, when she begins an affair with the ranch's American horse trainer, Juan feels a jealousy he never anticipated. What begins as sex can turn into something more, an unintended consequence of Juan's libertinism. Our Time shows that love can be a form of possessiveness. —Miguel Pendás
