Critic Reviews for Petra
An intense, cunningly structured and rewarding item about a woman's search for her father that should keep both the Rosales faithful happy and more general audiences (should it get the chance) intrigued.
What really keeps things together are the outstanding performances, starting with the always excellent Lennie and her aura of adult maturity dogged by uncertainty.
Petra is a sublime exercise of narrative skill and control of intrigue, which is perfectly executed thanks to the performances of Bárbara Lennie and Joan Botey. [Full review in Spanish]
It does not pretend to manipulate the viewer at any time, it leaves a lot of space for your imagination. [Full Review in Spanish]
The dialogue is convincing, combined with a precise black humor. [Full review in Spanish]
If something from Jaime Rosales' latest film can be celebrated, it's its permeability when it comes to portraying environments, from the less favored neighborhoods of his film Beautiful Youth to the farmhouse of Petra. [Full review in Spanish]
