Without Cruz, this movie might not have added up to as much. But with her vivid presence, it shimmers and throbs.
Pah to logic and believability!
Not unlike Ali MacGraw in the equally apocryphal Love Story, the closer our heroine inches toward death's door, the more physically attractive she becomes. Phooey!
This is an old-school tearjerker, designed to get audiences sniffling in the dark.
Long before anyone in "Ma Ma" expires, the movie does.
"Ma Ma" clearly wants to be tearjerker, but there's no need to have tissues handy for this one.
Penélope Cruz is luminous and with the force of her charisma holds the film together as the suffering madonna, unbelievably cheerful and selfless throughout her protracted ordeal.
Featuring one of Penélope Cruz's greatest ever performances, Ma Ma is an exemplar of what a classy director can do with potentially soapy material.
... the schmaltz accumulates to near-surrealist heights...
You'd call it offensive if the faux-deep dialogue and karaoke-singing gynaecologists were not merely ludicrous.
Though Ma ma's melodramatic DNA is hampered by Medem's austere aesthetic, there's still enough inherent emotional power to satisfy the casual arthouse crowd looking for alternative foreign fare this summer.
Ma Ma, at best minor Medem, unfolds like an afternoon TV movie that's been at the sherry, or placed on the heaviest of medication.
