  • Japón

    2002. Mexico/Spain. Written and directed by Carlos Reygadas. With Alejandro Ferretis, Magdalena Flores. This much-lauded debut feature is a brilliant study of a suicidal middle-aged man's path to salvation and an elderly woman's altruism. Shot in beautifully textured 16mm Cinemascope, the film envelops its characters in the stunning landscapes of Northern Mexico's canyon terrain, where details—including the presence of animals and the minutiae of village life—attain great significance, anchoring the unconventional encounter between the two characters. With Jap&oacure;n, Reygadas displays an early mastery of form and pacing, and a remarkable talent for using nonactors to astounding effect. In Spanish; English subtitles. 128 min.
