A Thousand Clouds of Peace

The full, original title is A Thousand Clouds of Peace Fence the Sky, Love; Your Being Love Will Never End, but we'll stick with the truncated version. This arty, attractive and rather bleak love story introduces us to slate-faced Gerardo, who is dumped by his boyfriend and wanders around Mexico City in a haze of emotional pain and meaningless sexual encounters. The film is achingly slow and nearly wordless, which is sure to turn off those expecting a little action, dialogue, character development, etc. As a fetishistic ode to homosexual depression, it does the job. But it's not the easiest film to connect with. In Spanish with English subtitles. 80 minutes
