Sotomayor's vivid compositions establish environments and spaces tellingly, hinting at the family's history and current state through minor details and gestures, suggesting the bigger picture without ever explaining it.

The takes are long, static and not always rewarding, but Santi Ahumada's performance as Lucía has the qualities we used to associate with Italian neo-realism.

Sotomayor's movie is more than the sum of its carefully accumulated details.

It's prone to burying its sharper observations under drift, but the performers, working almost in teams, are convincing, and Sotomayor elicits consistently charming responses from Ahumada in particular: bored, wistful, alert to the trouble ahead.

Impressively directed and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging road-movie/coming-of-age-drama with stunning camerawork and a terrific central performance from young Santi Ahumada.

What distinguishes Castillo's film is the facility and accuracy with which she understands, remembers and recreates the fish-bowl vistas and claustrophobic intimacy of a long car-bound journey.

Sotomayor has crafted a compelling mix of road movie and coming-of-age story, using subtle tricks to involve the audience in the complexities and ambiguities of both marriage and childhood.

The images of North Chile's lunar landscapes sing - if you can stand the mercilessly long takes.

The naturalistic acting is uniformly good, but Ahumada is most memorable. Fresh-faced, wise, and sensitive, she is the antithesis of the manufactured precocious adolescent in Hollywood films.

Says and conveys more substance with a seemingly casual glance than most action-packed vehicles.

[It] feels as long as its name, with long, mostly silent stretches devoted to staring out the window at the stark, scrubby scenery.

The painstakingly over-methodical approach gives this the feel of a first-time director trying a little too hard, or perhaps not hard enough.
