Critic Reviews for 37 Seconds

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (2)

  • It's a rare film that understands disability as a complex part of its character's understanding of themselves and the world around them, rather than a categorization to be swiftly demonized or fetishize.

  • "37 Seconds" is deceptively delicate and quietly tough. Not unlike its protagonist.

  • This isn't the anodyne, awards-baiting film about disability that viewers might be used to; instead, Hikari's feature debut is sensitive and empathetic, showing a young woman who is more than just her cerebral palsy.

    January 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A refreshingly unbiased look at a real heroine.

    September 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Eventually, though, the film loses confidence in itself, overloading its last third with needless family-secret twists and one especially unnecessary travelogue denouement.

    September 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It is a very authentic drama about the stages of maturity of a disabled woman. [Full review in Spanish]
