In this film, Albert Serra offers a witty contemplation of the Three Wise Kings on a search for the newborn baby Jesus and their journey takes on epic proportions as they meander along the desert-like terrain with fortitude and stoicism.
Albert Serra’s mysterious adaptations—including Don Quixote and Dracula—are always quietly rich and voluptuously surprising. This exquisite Nativity play, depicted in radiant black-and-white and through masterful long takes, is a profound example of Serra’s uniquely freeform digital cinema.
