Critic Reviews for La Soledad
In its thoughtful, pragmatic way, La Soledad is an inventive and insightful exercise in exploring a real location down to the last cobwebbed corner. And politically, it depicts a desperate state of affairs, but with hope and quiet energy.
An extraordinary blend of documentary and fiction, a strikingly intimate, humane tale of a family, a house, and a nation. Like nothing you've seen before.
Barry Jenkins' masterful picture Moonlight followed a life across decades, and whilst Armand's is a vignette of an ongoing struggle, there is a similarly powerful emotional timbre.
The debut feature from the Venezuelan director Jorge Thielen Armand, La Soledad is remarkably assured, even as it blurs the lines between fiction and reality by casting real people in not-so-real situations.
The action meanders occasionally, while some of the symbolism is overloaded. But getting the film made at all in the face of increasing censorship is remarkable.
