  • [The film has] moments of great beauty for a film that does not always reach the same height, but when it does it becomes one of the most interesting proposals of the [Cannes] Fortnight. [Full review in Spanish]

  • A leisurely paced, sometimes enigmatic pleasure which will appeal to those who like their art cinema intelligent and slow-burning.
