Take the final scene. Was that a happy ending or a moment from the past? What to make of the mutual love declaration in the penultimate scene?
What I love about this film are the lateral images - stairs, venetian blinds, bridges, ladders, bookcases, freeways, bars, beds, photographs
and all the shoulder touching, love making, full of doubt and sheer
longing moments that overlay them.
This, coupled with the camera's constant circling around the protagonists make this a truly remarkable film. (I hope you noticed the scenes where the same actor appears in more than one spot in the same take.)
Yes, this film is not for everyone. Yes, there is little dialog, and yes, most of you will pan it.
For me, el Cielo Dividido remains a silent, magical love story, brilliantly told by Julián Hernández, coupled with exceptional photography and outstanding performances from Fernando Arroyo, Miguel Ángel Hoppe and Alejandro Rojo in the lead roles.
I listened to to the closing lyrics, " so close, so far," and looked back to the beautiful story I'd just been told.
