A film of uncommon restraint and considerable compassion.
A fable-like, elemental story that sketches its characters too faintly to develop much power.
You might not want to live here, but the imagery makes for a nice postcard.
Acevedo has a wonderful command of visual storytelling, as evidenced by how well he frames those dark interiors; he and Guzmán use every spare beam of light to illuminate the edges of his characters.
The film is beautifully composed and full of striking images, but Acevedo's ruthless depiction of hardship makes this hard to watch.
Cesar Acevedo's deliberately paced and distant-feeling debut works its way under audiences' skin, weaving a haunting allegory through painterly compositions.
Land and Shade will definitely be in my top 10 films of the year.
Land and Shade is a sensory-driven film about the stark reality of one salt of the earth, working class family, and their indelible perseverance for a better life.
It's a film that's feels nearly otherworldly in its isolation.
Where Land And Shade shines is in its outrage, and the heartbroken fury at the center of the film.
Landscape seems to push the film's characters away at the same time that it anchors them into place.
A protest film full of romanticism, but not in a melodramatic way. [Full review in Spanish]
