  • Paraisos Artificiales is an exemplary situation documentary that employs one professional actor, Luisa Pardo, and a single location, Playa Jicacal, as the basis for an 83-minute movie that's as much reverie as narrative.

  • It knows not to reveal much, to show only what it sees, and yet it manages to suggest very well the severity and urgency of the abyss that always lies beneath the surface.
