Critic Reviews for Mimosas
A movie that panders not at all to Western sensibilities, giving few pointers on a theme beyond the fortifying power of faith. For some viewers, that will be plenty.
Laxe latches onto the innate "stranger in a strange land" quality of his star.

None of them have any idea where this journey will take them... but it is what happens during and not the final destination that should matter to us, especially if Mauro Herce is in charge of filming the process. [Full review in Spanish]
[Olive] Laxe favors long scenes, beautiful but slow-moving, of the caravan trudging through the immense landscape. When violence comes late in the film, the camera is so far away we can barely make out what is happening.
