Critic Reviews for The Future Perfect (El futuro perfecto)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

There is gentle comedy here, and a real rooting interest deriving from Ms. Zhang's committed, never-a-false-note performance. The film's unusual perspective makes it a distinctive and potentially enriching experience.

Each neorealist story thread doubles as a case study for how our ever-shrinking world redefines culture and communication, but played as a downbeat comedy of misunderstandings in which Xiaobin mimics Buster Keaton's expressionless disenchantment.

Wryly amusing, intriguingly stylized.

Such an unpretentious delight that it would be a shame to relegate it to specialty streaming sites.

... The Future Perfect is a kind of cinematic essay, or sketch that combines documentary with fictionalized scenes. [Full review in Spanish]

It is a charming film whose strength lies in its simplicity. It raises the migratory situation from a new perspective, and shows us the torture of adapting, changing and questioning preconceived ideas. [Full review in Spanish]
