A family lives in the Mexican countryside raising fighting bulls. Esther is in charge of running the ranch, while her husband Juan, a world-renowned poet, raises and selects the beasts. Although in an open marriage, their relationship begins to crumble when Esther falls in love with an American horsebreaker and Juan is unable to control his jealousy.

  • Critic's Pick! Enthralling [and] unaccountably moving. The movie asks a lot of the viewer, but to this viewer, it gives back more.
    The New York Times
  • Extraordinary.

  • [A] masterpiece. A continuous single take of an airplane breaking through the clouds as it descends on the Mexican capital, is the film's pièce de résistance, the stuff of masters.
    The Wrap
  • A twisted tale of love. An absolute work for art.
    Vox Magazine
  • OUR TIME is the kind of film that’s capable of inverting our entire understanding of cinematic truth.
    Film Comment
  • A film of considerable visual poetry and, at times, grandeur.
    Screen Daily
  • A soul-searching work of scorching honesty that functions both as an anatomy of love and marriage, and as an evisceration of masculinity.
    Sight & Sound
  • Jealousy and insecurity spill out into a canvas of rapturous imagery.
