Critic Reviews for Retablo
Alvaro Delgado Aparicio examines societal notions of masculinity, and how an artistic temperament can be both a vulnerability and a lifeline in a harsh world.
Director Alvaro L. Aparicio sculpts a world for Segundo every bit as delicate as his father's figurines.
Alvaro Delgado Aparicio frames the action exquisitely, at time letting us see Segundo's aloneness in the vast landscape, at others framing characters against walls or with trees or doorways so that they resemble the retablos themselves.
An emotionally brutal tale of self realisation, which even in its heightened state and geographically detached setting, will likely prove to be relatable due to the sheer universality of Segundo's pre-coming out quandary.
