Critic Reviews for The Shepherd (El pastor)

All Critics (12)

A social western where the director manages to enrich his dramatic skein with an oppressive atmosphere in crescendo, avoiding archetypes and carefully selecting the climax of the narration until the inevitable final tragedy. [Full review in Spanish]

This is a quietly stirring film with its heart in the right place, and a finale that delivers. Miguel Martín is never less than watchable as the taciturn, oblivious presence on the fringes of a sinister, squabbling melodrama.

Well-meaning but predictable ...

Your pulse rate slows to the rhythms of lost rural life at the start of The Shepherd, but by the end it has hearts racing in a western-style stand-off.

June 2, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A poignant and expertly restrained meditation on greed and financial hardship in rural Spain.

Burley (who acts as cinematographer, too) has a fine eye and a Renoir-esque compassion for his often quixotic protagonists.
