Critic Reviews for Puzzle
It's both funny and touching that one of María's favorite puzzles is an enigmatic portrait of Nefertiti. With her own enigmatic allure, María is the queen of puzzlers.
Will Maria leave Juan for Roberto? Like the rest of the movie, the answer is routine.
With minute facial movements, Ms. Onetto can signal feelings that run from rueful to sardonic, while remaining tantalizingly enigmatic.
Though the film reaches a seemingly artificial either/or scenario with regard to the competitive puzzling, its conclusion is pleasing and not at all pat, a portrait of a woman who's learned she deserves to keep some things for herself.
