News & Interviews for Sieranevada
Critic Reviews for Sieranevada
The film's 176-minute length will tax patience, but that almost seems the point in a story about how truth is arrived at and/or denied.
It is a bit of a slog, clocking in at almost three hours, but those of us with quarrelsome kin will find much to relate to.
For better and worse, the film itself, which was inspired by the 40-day wake for Puiu's own father, feels similarly random and personal.
While the film may be ponderous going for the vast majority of moviegoers, if only because characters talk and talk and talk, but seldom ever speak the truth... Sieranevada gives audiences plenty to sink their teeth into over the hours and days to come.
Sieranevada is a monumental portrait of a family and a society ripped apart by the mistrust that comes from a violent and perilous history, clinging to memories that create rifts instead of healing them.
Audience Reviews for Sieranevada
Finding a perfect balance between touching and humorous, this revealing family drama is a fantastic ballet of camera and mise-en-scène (with many beautiful long takes), and I love the way it lets us organize in our heads the relationships between all characters in the family.
