Critic Reviews for Elena
Elena is at once a portrait, an autobiography and a history of family trauma.
The movie becomes a defiant reversal of that sentiment, an act of creation in the face of death.
A type of cinematic performance art, with all the self-consciousness that suggests - a sibling love story that's no less heartfelt for being in the form of a first-person poem.
Mysterious and hermetic, this memoir is a collage of home movies, photographs, audio recordings and lyrical narration that reframes a troubled family history through a heartbroken lens.
Costa may not be detail-oriented when it comes to the minutiae of her sister's biography, but when it comes to creating emotional portraiture, she's exhaustive.
