Urok (The Lesson) Reviews

October 10, 2016
A film with a coherent audiovisual appearance but abuses of the "the world is horrible" card. [Full review in Spanish]

The talented Margita Gosheva grippingly plays an assertive, hardworking, honest heroine, but that's all she'll do here. Following her static, white-knuckled strain is compelling but not exactly a delight.

It's akin to watching someone get their knuckles cracked by a ruler, over and over again.

The plot undermines the film's power. At the end you may be impressed at the skill on display, but you may also wish that you were more fully moved by the spectacle of a soul laid bare and transformed.
