Critic Reviews for Hermanas
[Director Julia] Solomonoff draws out vivid performances by Valeria Bertuccelli (Elena) and Ingrid Rubio (Natalia) that make up for the script's predictability.
The ghost of 1970s Argentina haunts 1980s Texas in this perceptive and beautifully acted drama from the Argentine director Julia Solomonoff.
Solomonoff cuts back and forth between 1984 and 1976, gradually revealing the truth of what happened, but the mystery is less important than the complex relationship between Natalia and Elena, which was sorely tested by events beyond their control.
Solomonoff's screenplay unwisely telegraphs key events long before they turn up on screen, and her direction is so slovenly that the film often feels like a surveillance video with English subtitles.
Better than the film's soap-operatic flashbacks, familiar slogs through Cautiva terrain, are the story's playful, unpretentious observations of culture-clash and assimilation.
Sisters (Hermanas) tends toward the melodramatic, but has a lot to say about the struggle to accept the past in order to move forward.
