Engrossing, intelligent fare.
Abel works best as a situational comedy... There is also a serious message about parental abandonment and the treatment of children by society that doesn't always hit home.
After its edgy, deliberately puzzling first hour, it starts to run out of steam, but at 85 minutes it doesn't overstay its welcome.
Diego Luna's promising debut as a director is a slight and charming tale of a troubled young boy's retreat into fantasy.
Enjoyable, off-beat drama that's both darkly funny and emotionally engaging, thanks to assured direction from Diego Luna and a terrific central performance from young Christopher Ruiz-Esparza.
A slow-burning but satisfying comedy that goes for gentle humour rather than belly laughs.
It's an intriguing film...
Abel may mark the beginning of a major new Latin American voice.
A comedy that is creepy and amusing in just the right measures.
Luna makes fine use of production designer Brigitte Broch's shabbily cosy interiors to prevent the film from turning into a twee shantytown fairy tale...
Mexican cinema adds another gem to its treasure chest.
Engaging and involving, and so bizarre that it's impossible to predict where the story's going
The drama lies in everyday situations for adults, but dangerous ones for children. The comedy presents itself in the hilarity of kids acting as grownups. John Malkovich-produced Mexican dramedy is sort of reminiscent of 'Lars and the Real Girl' in the way those who surround a character with severe mental issues act and react.
Strong performances from first-time actor Christopher Ruiz-Esparza, Karina Gidi and Diego Luna's friend and frequent collaborator, 'Chema' Yázpik. Unfortunately, in the end, the film doesn't wrap up neatly, it just finishes.
