Critic Reviews for Rara

All Critics (9)

A delight to watch, Rara takes its time to present a complex family full of three-dimensional characters.

The denunciation yields to a will of impartiality that endows the story with a certain cosmopolitan credibility, by not highlighting almost any particularism and based on a cordial daily life. [Full review in Spanish]

April 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A film that doesn't hide its militancy, but that prefers to convince to the viewer with common sense and the sensitivity. [Full review in Spanish]

Director Pepa San Martín crafts the story so that Sara's family turmoil is never directly explained to the audience. Instead, we see the tension of adult drama through the confused and disillusioned eyes of a young girl coming of age.

February 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A film that has a remarkable work of all its actors in a very functional staging that, curiously, starts with an elegant extended shot of almost three minutes in length. [Full review in Spanish]

January 26, 2017 | Full Review…

A film with a clear and straightforward approach that doesn't seek to experiment with brainy metaphors, and that's why it works quite well, and worth going to see it. [Full review in Spanish]
