Critic Reviews for Finding Altamira (Altamira)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (5)

  • Finding Altamira is let down by ordinary acting, way too many scholarly adages and a perplexing level of inaction.

    September 23, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Director Hugh Hudson maintains a steady hand throughout in this low-key but powerful rumination on faith and reason.

    September 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Antonio Banderas' admirable performance fails to energize Hugh Hudson's handsome but ponderous period drama.

    September 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A well-mounted if largely prosaic period drama ...

    I discovered this film by mere coincidence, never even knowing of its existence. And I truly loved it: the story, Banderas' performance, the characters, everything!
