Critic Reviews for August Evening
Loren has an ethereal presence that is, at the same time, indomitable.
Eska's tale of a woman's unconditional support of her father-in-law is told with a faux-poetic sensibility that never really connects with his characters' lives.
A poignant film filled with ample rewards for those who submit to its leisurely pace and gentle observations.
Eska, who wrote and edited his film, appears to be at the beginning of a good career.
Pedro Castaneda, a nonprofessional appearing in his first film, and Veronica Loren tug at your heartstrings with their portrayals of the lead characters.
Audience Reviews for August Evening
This movie has a slow pace, but some wonderful moments. It's a slice of life movie about strong relationships, and the importance of family. Not for someone who gets bored easily, however, because it really is a slow moving (yet nice) drama.
The story sometimes moves at a crawl, but always the filmmaker follows the pair with unobtrusive attentiveness to conflicting cultural and generational pulls.
