60% Dog Days (2018) And although the outcome is about to exceed the barrier of the tear, (almost) always arrives in time a reply, a wink or a joke that moves away from the cliff of the cloying and brings it to a certain dignity. [Full Review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

50% Just a Breath Away (Dans la brume) (2018) Although it does not need great special effects, the image of Paris flooded by the haze is very powerful... and, in its final part, appeals to a cutting spirit of biblical reminiscence... [Full Review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) Even so, the sharpness in the dialogue, the sympathy Paul Rudd always exudes, and, again, his sensible perception of being a minor product, make Ant-man and the Wasp a more acceptable ephemeral pleasure. [Full Review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)

98% The Cakemaker (2018) In the most subtle way, [The Cakemaker] is a reflection on the relations of the Germans with the Jews, and a clear criticism towards the religious practices that are taken to the extreme. [Full Review in Spanish]‐ El Pais (Spain)
