Critic Reviews for Valentin
A melancholy and overly familiar thing.
Sporting thick, black-rimmed glasses, a runaway imagination and enough nervous energy to light up Manhattan, Noya turns what could have been a pitiful character into a rambunctious imp.
The winsome child/unappreciative adults memoir is almost a genre unto itself. But this version is particularly well-cast and well-told.
Agresti has a decent cast here, but his story is so thin, it threatens to float right off the screen, even when late plot developments add a twist or two.
A child's film for adults.
Audience Reviews for Valentin
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!
It was such a sweet movie. I confess I was crying.
