Broken Sky

Writer-director Julian Hernandez traces the dissolution of a young gay couple's torrid relationship at a Mexico City university, and his rigorously formalist approach turns this 140-minute Mexican feature into a mannered, pretentious snooze. With little dialogue, the film conveys mood and emotion through close-ups, choreographed movement, and numerous long takes, but its insularity soon becomes stifling. The plot hinges on a chance erotic encounter one partner has at a disco, which ludicrously dooms the lovers' relationship as he sullenly pines for his phantom suitor. With Miguel Angel Hoppe, Fernando Arroyo, and Alejandro Rojo. In Spanish with subtitles.
