News & Interviews for Casa de los Babys
Critic Reviews for Casa de los Babys
Each woman is a cardboard cutout, and the talented actresses here seem boxed in by their roles.
A raw slice of life that goes beyond the obvious external issues.
Didactic rather than dramatic, and schematic rather than realistic, Sayles' femme-driven yarn, set in an anonymous place, lags behind the zeitgeist with little to say about the issue of adoption or First vs. Third World countries.
a political pamphlet not very different from others that come from left-leaning Hollywood these days
Audience Reviews for Casa de los Babys
I don't particularly care for loose-end-endings in which there are certain plotlines left with no resolutions. That is my only qualm with this gem... it was a very important piece of art about the agony of infertility, the clashing of very different cultures but also the similarities between them, and about the love of family.
I thougt this movie was just weird.
Excellent! Very intriguing. This movie was definitely worth sitting down and watching for.
