A coming-of-age tale that's more cloying than affecting.

Audience Reviews for Valentin

  • Sep 20, 2011
    I expected to really love this movie...but I found it just passable as a decent film. The young boy was adorable, and this movie revolves around his thoughts, and ideas. The opening hour is mostly Valentin's own voice-over monologue, setting up his character, and his predicament, without much story progression. Things come together into something of a small story during the final twenty minutes, with a resolution that is bittersweet. The ending was cute, but feasible? ...maybe in those times, and in that country?

    'El sueño de Valentín' was a pleasant surprise. Enjoyable,funny,with authentic acting ,were some of the most certain things the movie offers . This unique story is about the decisions and the life adults make, ' judged ' and watched close by an 8 year old child. Definitely a must watch!
