Although at first I am captivated by the beautiful animation of 'Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles', I soon perceive a timed indulgence and a narrative inertia that removes my interest in the story. [Full review in Spanish]

The idea that this was when the great provocateur discovered compassion is a touch simplistic, but Simó expresses it through elegant storytelling.

With its dust and sherry-toned colour palette and starkly angular character design, it will intrigue animation fans.
July 18, 2020
As a"making of" movie, however, it's instantly gratifying and easily comparable with Les Blank's Fitzcarraldo film Burden of Dreams.

Labyrinth of the Turtles is a charming and occasionally moving love letter to the legendary Spanish-Mexican surrealist, and at a spry 80 minutes, doesn't outstay its welcome.
July 16, 2020
An engaging if somewhat demure animation, bordering occasionally on a kind of gentle sentimentality that is inimical to the subject...

This speedy portrait of the surrealist as a young man has its own discreet charms.

provides a fascinating insight into the mind of one of the country's most famous filmmakers.

At its heart, the film tells an incredibly touching - and altogether unexpected - human story. Entertaining and educational in equal parts, Simó's animated film is one you don't want to skip.

Beautifully animated, and the sequences dramatizing the surrealist visions that visit Buñuel in his dreams are striking.

I liked the concept of this movie but the beautiful animation makes it worth a watch. Very creative

By confining itself to a certain slice of life, it becomes a solid and considerate effort, almost soothing in its treatment of the celebrated director's inner troubles and external obstacles. Definitely a film to watch.

Buñuel In The Labyrinth Of The Turtles is also worth watching in its own right and one hopes that it will draw more attention to this important piece of cinematic history.

One of the best animated movies of the year, and a historical document for our industry and our cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's an impressive and affecting work.

It's a curio for the completist, but not an unworthy one.
September 20, 2019
It's not necessary to know anything about surrealism, Buñuel's influential work or 20th-century Spanish politics to appreciate the underlying coming-of-age story of a privileged young man learning to value the human lives around him.
