Sangre, a brave Mexican film
30 November 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

A brave film that takes Mexican cinema in a new way of telling stories. Without professional actors, with low budget, is a fresh and critical sight of the Mexican quotidian reality of a middle class couple, Cirilo Recio and Claudia Orozco. She works in a pizzeria and he is guardian of a public building. T.V. soap operas, mechanical sex are their every day life, interrupted by the unexpected presence of Cirilo's daughter who gives a twist to the story. Their human values are exposes through a great cinematography by Alex Fenton, with a new way of seeing the reality. The price given in Cannes in "Une certain regard", (Fipresci) and in the Thessalonica film fest by Vittoiro Storaro -as president of the jury- are testimony of the importance of the film particularly for the Mexican cinema, nevertheless it was produced 100% with European funds. Amat Escalante, who worked as assistant to Carlos Reygadas (co producer of Sangre) in Battle in heaven, is certainly one of the new leaden talents.
