Critic Reviews for Ava

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

The ending is left deliberately, unsatisfyingly ambiguous, but whatever her fate may be, in or out of the system, it doesn't matter that much to the viewer.

Right up to the slightly unsatisfying ending, "Ava" is both a complex character portrait and a heartsore farewell to the ephemeral images that will be among the last she sees.

Beautiful at times, Mysius making reality fantastical, the film also suffers for providing no motivation for Ava's continual cruelties.

In its totality Ava is a powerful and authentic depiction of a vital moment in a young woman's life.

... an imaginative and luminous passage... [Full review in Spanish]

The playful, comedic tone in which Mysius directs the gun chase reflects Ava's subjective experience. It stands out as surreal in a film that otherwise takes Ava's experiences at face value.
