Critic Reviews for Casa de los Babys
Each woman is a cardboard cutout, and the talented actresses here seem boxed in by their roles.
A raw slice of life that goes beyond the obvious external issues.
It is a story without a story, helpless and wandering, enjoyable for its parts but failing as a whole.
If most of the characters seem underdeveloped, they are also convincing and interesting.
Sayles, a rare screenwriter who consistently creates thoughtful roles for grown-up women, has outdone himself here.
Audience Reviews for Casa de los Babys
I don't particularly care for loose-end-endings in which there are certain plotlines left with no resolutions. That is my only qualm with this gem... it was a very important piece of art about the agony of infertility, the clashing of very different cultures but also the similarities between them, and about the love of family.
I wanted to LOVE this film because it has Lili Taylor in it:) It was a good movie, don't get me wrong. Decent writing, creative dialogue, and some interesting images and scenes. However, I think this is Maggie Gyllenhaal at her worst. I just really could have cared less about her character. That, and the ending was somewhat abrupt. Overall though, I really did like it.
I thougt this movie was just weird.
