Mexico, Spain / 2002 / 122'
A man leaves Mexico City for the remote countryside in the south to prepare for his death. There he finds lodgings with an old Indian widow who lives alone in her rickety home overlooking a desolate canyon. In the vastness of a wild, breathtaking nature, he measures himself with the old woman’s infinite humanity and oscillates between cruelty and lyricism. His dulled senses return to him, reawakening his desires and instincts for life and raw sexuality.
