  • With such intense chiaroscuro, its images can prove heartbreaking.

    Sep 7, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Only the powerful screen presence of the lead, whose life story this is, saves this punishingly dark work from drowning in its own purposeful opacity.

  • Even if audiences find themselves adrift in the convolutions of the screenplay's non-linear narrative, there are near-incessant compensations in the form of Leonardo Simoes' cinematography.

  • Vitalina Varela begins with a procession leaving a funeral, ends in a graveyard, and in the middle puts you in touch with something absolute in its main character's experience.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Vitalina is a deepening of [Horse Money] as well as something of a departure for the director.
