Johan is a married man and father who falls in love with another woman, against the laws of man and God. This threatens his place in his conservative Mennonite community in the north of Mexico. His friend and father offer no respite, citing the work of the devil. He must agonizingly choose between obligation, faith, and natural love, knowing there will be no grace in the end … though there are sometimes miracles in cinema. This visually brilliant film won the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. Martin Scorsese wrote, “I was amazed by Silent Light ... most of all by Reygadas’ extraordinarily rich sense of cinema, evident in every frame.” In Spanish, German, English, and French with English subtitles.
