Critic Reviews for The Moving Creatures

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

A chilling reminder that a simple life is no shield against the disastrous or the devastating, and that the parent-child relationship is at least as essential to the parent as it is to the child.

A puzzling film that despite being saturated with feeling leaves only a vague impression.

Caetano Gotardo's triptych of short tales features a sense of experimentation and poetic license mostly seen in European cinema.

Potentially off-putting, 'The Moving Creatures' blends unlikely genre elements in a surprisingly endearing way.

Audience Reviews for The Moving Creatures


The music is a bit redundant and Gotardo's direction awkward sometimes (especially the mise-en-scène, more suitable for children's theater), but this slice-of-life drama can be devastating as it shows us three situations about people's lives torn apart by startling tragedies.
