Critic Reviews for Zama
Zama, despite its setting, isn't such a radical departure for Martel; it preserves her talent for tracking an individual through chaotic social spheres ...
The frustrating nine-year wait for new material from Martel has done nothing to blunt her exquisite, inventive command of sound and image, nor her knack for subtly violent exposure of social and racial prejudice on the upper rungs of the class ladder.
It is an invitation to the senses, a film that floods, overflows... [Full review in Spanish]
Reinvents the historical epic by bringing to life an absurdist look at an unnamed, isolated late 18th Century Spanish colony in South America.
I might call the film a delirium, but Martel is too precise for that, and too harshly satirical. You might rather think of this work as a landscape film, whose softly colored, picturesque surface is disturbed here and there by grubby fools.
