There's something genuinely religious in Rosetta's stark portrayal of unyielding resurrection.

a small miracle of a film, one that accomplishes so much with seemingly so little and feels all of a piece, not a moment wasted or misused

The camera follows right behind Rosetta as she stampedes her way through hardship after hardship, determined to get a fair shake. This puts the viewer in the shoes of Rosetta and we experience her pain firsthand.

Rosetta (is) a perpetual motion machine constantly racing away from a lens that will always catch up to her.

'An unflinching portrait of the dehumanizing effects of being forced to live hand-to-mouth with no real hope of escaping.'

The drama vividly conveys the stunted emotional and spiritual life of a teenager who has no time for anything except the struggle to survive.

Some viewers (including a few who walked out when I saw the movie) are going to find the subject too grim and the production too stark - but that's the idea.

The directors jump into an impoverished, fast-moving life, and never attempt to put on the brakes for the sake of providing audience comfort.
