This is how Variety critic Peter Debruge descibes the film

Claudia Llosa expands her preoccupations with mysticism and superstition in the modern world, working her way up from a medieval-minded Andean village in “Madeinusa” to faith healing at the frigid far reaches of the Arctic Circle with “Aloft.” But this time, instead of seeming plugged into some primitive native religion, the Peruvian helmer invents a rickety belief system as a pretext for tearing it all down, botching the telling of a more satisfying character-based story in the process. Replacing melancholy muse Magaly Solier with an equally forlorn-looking international cast led by a courageous Jennifer Connelly, Llosa stands to baffle more than her usual circle of arthouse adherents with this doleful downer, snapped up by Sony Classics before its Berlinale premiere.

Sony Classics is on a hell of a run right now and it looks like the trend might be continuing with this latest acquisition.
