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.

A greek tragedy in modern times. A must. [Full review in Spanish]

At a time when the feminist revenge narrative risks a descent into cliché, Rosales's decision to withhold the film's central affective event... proves all the more effective.

The calculated and minute structure of the film leads the spectator through a strange labyrinth at the same time and perfectly recognizable. [Full Review in Spanish]

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]
