Valley Of Love Reviews

May 14, 2020
It tries to create a somewhat ghostly atmosphere that ends up not delving into the subject of loss and its confrontation. [Full Review in Spanish]

For all its undoubted curiosity value, this Valley runs dry too quickly.
September 13, 2016
Between drama and supernatural slips in the plot, Nicloux manages to offer a balanced, but not outstanding, film. [Full review in Spanish]

Promises much, but ends up feeling strangely underpowered and insincere.

While intriguing, the movie simply isn't penetrating or profound. The psychological drama needs to go deeper, and the paranormal scenes prove merely teasing.

As weak as Valley of Love is for much of its first hour, its final act, where the two characters are confronted with the reality of their son's request and Gerard's revelation about his own personal health, is at least more palatable.

Aims to go deep but is as shallow as a puddle would be in the almost laughably literal Death Valley locale.

A project that gives its leads little to do other than complain about the heat and bad cellphone reception and look askance at American boorishness.

Seeing Depardieu and Huppert together again is an obvious treat and redeems what would otherwise be a rather vaporous mirage. One can only regret they hadn't been given something more substantial to do.
