Lensing by Alejandro Cantu is breathtaking, beautifully framed and gracefully describing space with a seductive blend of closeups and fluid camerawork. His art depicts the universal essence of yearning. Helmer transforms thesps who could seem like empty lookers into men and women endowed with heroic hearts. He brings awestruck Antonioni with him, Sternberg for the glamour of sexual attraction, Resnais for the mind-bending sense of passing time, and Ophuls for the vertiginous yet sobering thrall. Produced by Roberto Fiesco. Impetuous stream, go find him. A mighty companion will come to you. The changed tense indicates that these period-set, mythological scenes depict the origins of desire, casting Ryo, Tari and Kieri as warriors, vassals and conquistadors. Their restlessness in an indifferent world is surveyed through probing camera work that gains a spiritual and sensual insight into their desire-driven lives. It is simultaneously feminist and macho, yet Hernandez infantilises the male as erotically newborn, a spiritual virgin, a cadet embarking on emotional high seas. The plot unfolds at a leisurely pace, gleaned from a series of incidents before completely changing style in the last hour. Sometimes they feel threatened by the eroticism in my films, with a single look or with the depiction of the human body. Yet he invests these pervs with beauty and passion, never falsifying their lasciviousness. Their clay-caked bodies and serpentine slithering on dry earth or in dank caves suggest religious symbols with prophetic antecedents.
