Palisades Tartan's Carlos Reygadas' SILENT LIGHT reviewed/compared

I have reviewed and compared the Palisades Tartan R2 UK and R1 NTSC editions of Carlos Reygadas' SILENT LIGHT at DVDBeaver.  Although it won several awards (including Mexico's Best Picture equivalent and a Cannes Jury Prize) and film festival prizes, SILENT LIGHT was ruled ineligible for the Academy Awards (it was Mexico's entry for the year).  Johan (Cornelio Wall), a farmer in a Mexican Mennonite community, has fallen for Marianne (Maria Pankratz, Ariel winner for best supporting actress) although he is married to Esther (Miriam Toews, novelist and Ariel best actress nominee) and has five children.  Surprisingly, his preacher father only offers support for whatever choice he makes and warns him that he could lose both women if he doesn't act soon, but will fate force his hand?

Palisades Tartan (R2 UK PAL) DVD specs:
  • 2.35:1 16:9 anamorphic widescreen transfer
  • Plautdietsch DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 stereo audio
  • Optional English subtitles
