Critic Reviews for Daniel & Ana

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The spare, relentlessly controlled debut feature of the Mexican director Michel Franco, Daniel & Ana advances on minimal dialogue and with virtually no musical accompaniment.

The film's horrifying experience looms over each well-constructed frame without anywhere to go...

Time Out
Top Critic

Too bad the director blows it with a last act that tips the film's delicate balance over into lurid grotesquerie, even as his staging remains as consciously muted as ever.

Top Critic

For more than 40 minutes nothing happens, there are the same shots, the same scenes, the same misfortune. A constant Deja vu. [Full review in Spanish]

The important thing in the Francos script is not what is said, but what is reserved. This requires patience for the narrative of the film. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Daniel & Ana

A difficult but admirable film that should have served as a breakout for director Michal Franco and lead actress Marimar Vega.

Emily W

I watched it and found myself cringing at certain moments. The turmoil plaguing their lives is easily seen. It's heavy, yet subtle but a very decent film.
