Atmospheric and evocative... It's not the best of Farhadi, but even a lesser Farhadi is better than most films.
August 23, 2019
There is something about a story which peels back the layers so gently that really gets under the skin and when it's the secrets and lies of a whodunit - this is even more delectable.
July 11, 2019
The score is reserved only for the party scenes - it is a way to enhance the work of the actors, all impeccable. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 23, 2019
The family gathering, that creaky nest of vipers, proves patchy ground for writer-director Asghar Farhadi and his gamely fired-up cast.
June 22, 2019
A soap operatic Spanish kidnapping mystery loaded with great performers showing the ugly, age-old wounds reopened by the crime.
June 14, 2019
The most appreciated in this filmmaker is his impeccable handling of intimate atmospheres and his scenic control. [Full Review in Spanish]

Everybody Knows is a gorgeous film that features some truly wonderful moments of interpersonal connection, tucked as they are in between a stilted storyline.
May 12, 2019
Cruz and Bardem truly are one of the great screen couples of their generation.
May 4, 2019
Everybody Knows feels lifted from the 1930s school of theatre, heavy on the Expressionism, with its focus on spiritual awakenings and suffering. The tragedies at the centre linger in your memory.
May 2, 2019
Everybody Knows is an absorbing, expertly-crafted thriller that continually holds your emotions at ransom before unravelling - somewhat ambiguously - to leave you discussing long after it has gently washed away from the screen.

There will always be those that find foreign films less than appealing, but the Iranian filmmaker employs riveting techniques to sustain interest in his two-hour mystery.
April 19, 2019
"As usual in Farhadi's cinema, solving the puzzle is not the most important".
April 18, 2019
With all its twists and subtext, EVERYBODY KNOWS reaches a satisfying but poignant conclusion.
April 9, 2019
Everybody Knows is still an absorbing drama-thriller that delves into family relationships and the secrets we keep from each other.
April 3, 2019
...yet another misfire from a curiously well-regarded director.
March 29, 2019
If Everybody Knows is far below Asghar Farhadi's best level, it is still an offer that it is better not to reject. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 21, 2019
The distractingly oft-repeated title seems to herald an unfortunate new approach to imparting information for Farhadi: everybody will know everything, even if it means clumsy exposition, heavy-handed foreshadowing, and redundancy.
March 21, 2019
While Farhadi is a master of the drama, his gifts are at times an awkward fit for a kidnapping thriller. It is almost as if one bought a ticket for a Liam Neeson movie and wound up instead in a Strindberg play.
March 21, 2019
Even the way the movie is filmed, with its editing providing the narrative a freer flow, is different - though this may be merely a sign of Farhadi's new-found artistic freedom.
March 20, 2019
It undoubtedly manages to grasp your attention with an outstanding central performance by Penélope Cruz (one of her best to date) cementing this as a hard hitting, harrowing and compelling picture.
