Critic Reviews for The Father's Shadow (A Sombra do Pai)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Not entirely satisfying, it's nonetheless a curiously poignant fable of profound premature loss, both enhanced and somewhat muddled by its slippery occult elements.

  • There's no denying the young director's ability to conjure a doomed ambience out of an array of seemingly non-descript locations and inanimate objects.

    Oct 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An emotional horror drama about how working class people are turned into walking corpses by capitalism and what effect this has on their families.

    Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It wants to say something about fatherhood and family, but it doesn't seem to earn the oppressive and vaguely nihilistic ending.

    Jul 31, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The Father's Shadow is a meticulously crafted work of magical realism, embedded in its culture and ethos. It's the work of another intelligent, complex female director whose work will be fascinating to watch develop.

    Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Father's Shadow is a deeply moving supernatural tale about grief and loneliness, as a young girl discovers her power and agency in a hard, cold world.
