Broken Sky(El cielo dividido)

Well Before entering into the detailing of the film I would like to tell you all that if you are thinking of to watch something realistic then “Broken Sky” is not your cup of tea. Mexican filmmaker Julián Hernández has made a film without the realistic approach and that is his intention to plot the total thing in a different way. I would object to name Broken Sky: a cinema. This is something we have never seen before – a complete unique way of presenting emotions. Rather, this film is all about the flow of multilayered emotion. You people will hardly find any dialogue in it. The film itself has an intricately amusing plot, yeah it’s all about the general brilliance of the filmmaker. He is unblemished to frame the total thing in such a nice way that one can feel the warmth of each and every expression of the characters out there.


Well Broken Sky is a Spanish movie. You have to understand the film through  subtitles. Though frankly there is not much of the need of them. The storyline drives and flows you in such a way that words and language never come in your way. So there would not be any impenetrability of understanding.


It may seem that the characters are living in such a world where there is no distinction of GAY love and So called STRAIGHT  love, where everything is open and wide, no such restrictions or obligations. All the places have depicted in the film seem to be “Gay friendly” – from university campus to disco; everywhere people are completely at ease to the public display of emotion of the two main protagonists Gerardo (Miguel Ángel Hoppe) and Jonás(Fernando Arroyo).  They kiss each other in the library, in the university campus, in the disco, even in the university corridor…  The characters hardly speaks. They just express their feelings through their “divine expressions”. Expressions are so expressive that the dialogues become almost meaningless. The fresh April air brings the transition of the story. Jonas starts averting his face when Gerardo tries to caress or kiss him. And yet they’re still regularly living together. Gradually a third guy enters into the scene  –  Sergio (Alejandro Rojo), a slightly older man, a tall, dark, brooding fellow, even easier on the eyes than the other two. Sergio has wanted Gerardo for a long time, or so he says when they finally get together after one of several encounters, Sergio had seen them kissing in the campus and playing hide and seek in the library when he was installing a light bulb. But the ending is a happy and romantic one for Sergio. When Sergio and Gerardo are a couple, Jonas begins to long for Gerardo again, and in the final scene, they again patch up back together.


Broken Sky is more like a dynamic song or a poem. General audience is not at all accustomed to watch a Gay themed movie Without dialogues, We majority of the audience Go for the script of a good movie, But Broken Sky is totally a different experience. Nor even every gay man has the patience to watch it for 140 minutes of these amorous comings, As the characters are too specific to be generalized by their language. Broken sky will compel you to think of the unspoken words of any relationship which can never be communicated verbally. Broken Sky has Mind-blowing pop songs Which is rather in Spanish But you can feel the rhythm with its passionate outcome and the cinematography as well as if Gerando and Jonas are trying to live into the Song. Over all Broken sky is a must see irrespective of the orientation, irrespective of the mental moulds.
