Our Time ★★★★½

Our Time is about the realisation of a failing relationship and particularly about the failing of oneself. In the dialogue-heavy and confrontational film many things are left unspoken. However, the constantly discussed jealousy and expectations inherit so much sincerity and words, that everyone on some point tried to express, but failed. Reygadas protagonists happens the opposite: they communicate and reflect about their feelings and their relationship to each other, but still can't escape their own struggles. They are aware of them, but unleash thereby disruptiveness, that always has lurked in their affection. The story doesn't come to a tragedy, but to something beautiful and deeply humane.
