This drama, directed by Irish director Paddy Breathnach, is crafted with a simplicity that makes it interesting at times to examine the deep socio-economic housing crisis that is raging in Dublin, but the narrative loses steam. [Full review in Spanish]

Rosie is a five-star treat.
Jan 31, 2020
By employing techniques such as close-ups, extreme close-ups and hand-held long shots, Breathnach offers the viewer an unflinching look at Rosie's desperation, even as she's trying to keep up appearances.

Rosie cannily captures something about the fundamental tension between the banality and panic of poverty, and while far from experimental cinema in this sense there is something intrinsically radical about the film.

Director Paddy] Breathnach shows Rosie coping, multi-tasking, melting down, loving, forging ahead with her little girl. She is beautiful in every way. Her story is, too.
