Critic Reviews for La Tragedia de Macario

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

The attempt to marry naturalistic filmmaking to opera -- much of the narrative unrolls in song -- is misguided and unconvincing.

Top Critic

Inspired by a real incident in which 19 illegal immigrants died a similar death, La Tragedia de Macario takes one of the great issues of our time and makes it human in scale.

Boxoffice Magazine

The story could definitely use further exploring but sadly, the narrative form of La Tragedia De Macario steers it away from the interesting and turns it into the monotonous.
