Critic Reviews for Mercedes Sosa: The Voice of Latin America

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

An enjoyable if standard bio-docu that gives equal weight to Mercedes Sosa's voice, life and politics.

Variety
Top Critic

Suffers from its overly insular and hagiographic perspective, but in its best moments it well illustrates the reasons for her musical influence and social importance.

Top Critic

The lack of background information and connective tissue makes the film feel incomplete.

Top Critic

To many she was a saint, but there's only so much adoration one can take before longing for a more down-to-earth perspective.

Time Out
Top Critic

Alas, all [the] film can do to make its case for Sosa's significance is trot out subjects who compare her to Joan Baez, Ella Fitzgerald, and, most puzzlingly, "Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney in one," without elaboration.

But if a certain sentimentality means that there is a little too much included, the film also benefits from the obvious emotion that the contributors all pour into it.
