A relaxed pace and a gentle tone, allowing the themes of guilt and repressed longing to resonate, and his sympathy toward all the characters creates a winning sense of goodwill.
Languages have magic - dead or dying ones most of all - and some of that sorcery has made it onto the screen in the evocatively titled Mexican feature "I Dream in Another Language."
Poetic Mexican film raises philosophical questions about what is lost when a language - and by extension, our elders' memory - is allowed to fade away unpreserved.
It's delectably watchable.
It's thrilling to see such an original, mature story seek to fill its big heart with poetry.
While it provides plenty of food for thought, for large stretches it's dramatically defunct, with paper-thin characters playing soap opera roles.
Beyond the fact that the story has some originality in the cultural context of the film, the truth is that the movie becomes repetitive.
I Dream in Another Language is a wonderful film on life, love and the passage of time, but also tolerance and acceptance of oneself. [Full Review in Spanish]
With what is perhaps his best film so far, [director Ernesto Contreras] also creates an impeccable film with a powerful love story that shows the great technical and intellectual capacity of Mexican cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
Nostalgic and interesting, with an elegant visual style... [Full review in Spanish]
"I Dream in Another Language" is a dream-like film, and its poetic meditations on culture and language are more compelling than its plot.
Haunting, engrossing, and poetic with mesmerizing, beautifully-shot scenery reminiscent of the films of Carlos Reygadas.
