Critic Reviews for Sand Dollars (Dolares de Arena)
Co-directed by husband-and-wife filmmaking team Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán, Sand Dollars has an assured, light touch.
Guzmán and Cárdenas present this tropical island as both Anne's romantic refuge and Noelí's exploitative landscape, a beautiful, enchanting -- and realistic -- Eden where snakes are merely snakes.
Ms. Chaplin, in one of her most touching screen performances, imbues Anne with a world-weary melancholy that makes your heart sink.
Remarkable sensitivity and exacting verisimilitude are just two of the many selling points for Sand Dollars.
Playing out against a dreamy Caribbean backdrop, Sand Dollars is indeed about dreams, unpicking those of a gracefully aging lady and her young lover with a trembling delicacy and attentiveness.
Audience Reviews for Sand Dollars (Dolares de Arena)
Geraldine Chaplin delivers such a powerful and touching performance, not ashamed of showing her age and vulnerability, but the film, though appropriately raw and realistic, lacks in depth and doesn't explore so well its themes and what it wants to say to become memorable.
