Critic Reviews for Yuli

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (2)

  • Bollaín, working from Paul Laverty's script, has a trump card up her sleeve in the modern day dance sequences choreographed by Acosta, which punctuates the prosaic rags-to-renown dancer story with dollops of physical poetry.

    January 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It has all the makings of a perfectly formed feel-good movie, but Spanish director Iciar Bollain and British screenwriter Paul Laverty have less conventional ideas in mind.

    October 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film-makers' hearts are in Havana and, yes, their enthusiasm is infectious.

    April 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • At times the film's two storytelling modes feel disjointed, but here the use of choreography seems fittingly abstract, a bodily interpretation of an emotional memory.

    April 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The genius in the film is in how each section feeds each other, and indeed needs each other (the dance comments on the drama, and vice versa), and produces a wholly original and deeply affecting movie.

    April 12, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Crafted with passion, integrity and determination, much like Acosta himself.

  • ...a stunning embodiment of perseverance told through the art of cinema and dance.

  • Although the intentions are understood with the beautiful dance choreography, it lacks a bit of verve on the matter. [Full review in Spanish]
