FILM: Post Tenebras Lux (18)

Mexican film-maker Carlos Reygadas controversially won the Best Director prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for this challenging and hypnotic portrait of a family in crisis.

Middle-class couple Juan (Adolfo Jimenez Castro) and Natalia (Nathalia Acevedo) live in the mountains with their two small children in a large house which is constantly tended by handymen.

The parents occasionally let their minds wander and allow their bodies to do the same during a sexually charged holiday in Europe, intended as an outlet for their carnal desires.
