Critic Reviews for Duck Season (Temporada de patos)
The fullness of Duck Season is in direct proportion to its smallness; its modesty makes it bloom.
Effortlessly nonchalant in its observations of kids and the way the world looks to them.
Imagine Waiting for Godot performed by The Breakfast Club.
Often dull dialogue and marginally interesting characters.
A quiet, loopy gem, Duck Season is a goofball celebration of old friends, new beginnings, adolescent freedom, and baked goods laced with a little something extra.
Not much happens in Duck Season, but it's never dull: Eimbcke, a Spanish filmmaker making his feature debut, finds just the right note with his young actors and fills his film with telling detail.
Audience Reviews for Duck Season (Temporada de patos)
What to do in a monotonous sunday? Sundays are always boring, anyway.
But if the lights go off and you can´t play videogame anymore?
You deliver a pizza, of course, but why not making a cake maybe?
Duck Season shows in a very simple but effective way the banality and not always obvious complexity of a generation growing up in a society of trash food
and trash culture. Nothing really happens at the same time that everything does: discovery of sexuality, first kiss, divorce, parent´s absence, loneliness.
The pizza delivery man represents, perhaps, the future: as it´s possible to survive to a sunday, maybe it´s not possible to avoid the inevitable frustration...
A black and white meditation on boredom, young lust and determination in the face of nothing better to do and being young enough to know that you've got to make the most of it. Of course, the whole movie is an expression of friendship. What better way to show you love someone than to hang out with them all day doing nothing? Pot Brownies, porn and pizza help these kids along the way.
After all those great things I'd heard about this my expectations were high but..., Not a bad film but tries so hard to be simple that almost loses it, I hope Matando Cabos will be better
