Critic Reviews for Carmen & Lola (Carmen y Lola)

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

  • A pleasant but linear, single-issue movie, which is compassionate and deeply felt, but also tidy and tamed, just like first love isn't.

  • Ultimately both insipid and arguably too sympathetic for some viewers to the homophobic attitudes of the family.

  • Arantxa Echevarría's assured debut revolves around two Roma teens... The potential for tragedy comes from their patriarchal community's inability to accept same-sex romance, but the possibility for triumph lies with their stubbornness and strength.

  • By refusing to take the easy way out, [Spanish writer/director Arantxa Echevarría] transforms Carmen y Lola into a less cliché, forbidden love story with real consequences.

  • Carmen & Lola is a heartbreaking Spanish drama with a beautiful love story at its center.

  • A refreshing new take on a familiar tale of hidden sexuality and forbidden romance. It isn't entirely flawless, but seeing this story transported to a culture rarely depicted in pop culture makes it worth seeking out regardless.
