Broken Sky slips between waking and dreaming. With so little in the way of spoken words it is like a silent movie, this is frustrating at first, as it is not the norm and does not spoon-feed us a recognisable formula. Very little happens during the first hour, it is a repetitive fantasy, but this gently builds characters.
The emotional range of the film is restricted as the characters are gagged. There is no reason for this; they are from the same place and speak the same language.
It is somewhere between a film and photographs, so is not completely revealing. The cinematography is sensitive and subtle, with moments of beauty, it makes me think of Edward Hopper and Cindy Sherman. The soundtrack stood out, employing opera flowing into strings then techno. And being gay is not an issue in the world depicted here.
