Critic Reviews for Tierra (Earth)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

A superb meditation on love, lust, life and death.

A fascinating metaphysical excursion into the enigmatic and wondrous terrain of human emotion: attraction and connection, love and jealousy, the spiritual and the corporal.

Audience Reviews for Tierra (Earth)

Really a big challenge to one's patience. Rather slow & insipid although with some interesting moments near the end. Despite what the plot lines claim to be, it is actually a story off a man's indecision between the 2 women he loves & the struggle he encounters- but all put in a very complex, difficult circumlocution. Personally prefer [The Red Squirrel], even [Sex & Lucia] much more.
