Fine performances by Lola Duenas and Ana Duenas as the mutually needy mother/daughter tandem largely redeem Celia Rico Clavellino's debut from its overwrought, over-careful air.
Clavellino's approach is unsentimental and all the more believable for that.
Journey To A Mother's Room may be the debut feature from Spanish director Celia Rico Clavellino, but it is shot with the nuance of an established master.
As exemplary novel director, [Celia Rico Clavellino] renounces all visual or audible artifice to offer a humble work that seems to come directly from her heart; that is, from her relationship with her parents. [Full review in Spanish]
A film about the adventure of life that does not run through exotic territories but in just a few tiles. [Full Review in Spanish]
In her feature film debut, [director] Celia Rico Clavellino teaches us what cinema is without the need for large sets... astutely following each of the characters when the narration asks for it. [Full review in Spanish]
A very small first film from Celia Rico and, nevertheless, splendid work. [Full review in Spanish]
