Some people complained that my review of Carlos Reygadas's amazing, otherworldly, cosmic, phenomenal (even "funnanimal"—James Joyce's word) Silent Light failed to say what the movie is about. Fine. Here's the plot: A married, middle-aged farmer and father in a German-speaking Mennonite community in northern Mexico is having an affair with a slightly younger and vigorous woman. The farmer wants to end the affair and be faithful to his wife, but his love for his mistress surpasses his love for his wife. That is the whole story. Are you happy now?
