The Third Wife (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Third Wife
An audience-friendly affair which deals with harrowing subject-matter in restrained, tactful and aesthetically entrancing style...
Gently dipping us into the long ago and far away past, Ash Mayfair's directorial debut brings an intimate immediacy to the re-creation of rural Vietnam in the late 19th century.
Through the eyes of May, the viewer sees the young woman's confrontation with the real world, an accelerated transition where sexuality, marriage and motherhood are in the same vital phase. [Full review in Spanish]
Mayfair reveals [the consequences of injustice in their] tense brutality despite never relinquishing her handle on the aesthetic beauty housing those horrors.
It is commendable that Mayfair deftly enables May and her sister-wives to explore their own agencies and sexualities without ever using their suffering as window dressing to illustrate the film's gritty authenticity.
