“Curtis weaves plots that keep you on the edge of your seat.”

Koldo Landaluze, GARA


“This production admirably triggers emotions related to how hard it is to take control of your life and confront past emotions.”

Koldo Landaluze, GARA


“It is a glossy and enjoyable journey.”

Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY

“Gina Kim shoots with a good deal of energy, mixing up the laughs with the pathos and the food with the fun, and making good use of Shanghai and Singapore locations.”

Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY


“The director demands everything from his actors and they respond with a performance that does justice to the terrible animal nature of human beings.”

Víctor Esquirol, GARA


“Excellent rhythm and entertaining adaptation of the comic strip series about the life of the French foreign affairs minister.”

Oti Rodríguez, ABC

“The actor Thierry Lhermitte is the spitting image of Dominique de Villepin.”

Oti Rodríguez, ABC

“He always knows where to point his camera, training his shrewd gaze adroitly on reality.”

Angel Aldarondo, BERRIA

“Entertaining political satire with a cohesive cast that makes the plot that much more enjoyable.”

Anton Merikaetxebarria, EL CORREO

“The laughter that rang out at the San Sebastian Film Festival is a testimony of Tavernier’s know-how.”

EL MUNDO

“A surprising incursion into the world of comic strips and comedy (…) treats us to a stimulating film, a fast-paced plot, a piercing caricature about high politics at a time when all things political reek of stupidity and corruption.”

Juan Zapater, NOTÍCIAS DE GIPUZKOA


“Comes from John Lennon’s enigmatic Strawberry Fields which, like the film, once played is not easily forgotten.”

Fionnuala Halligan, SCREEN DAILY

“Javier Cámara, who delivers what is probably one of his best performances, manages to dominate the entire story and film with his own enthusiasm and his character’s as well.”

Oti Rodríguez, ABC

“Narrated with art, subtlety, emotion and flair. Everything is there—style, perception, bitter-sweet humour, fluid descriptions, lyricism, tenderness and sentimental complexity.”

Carlos BOYERO, EL PAÍS

“Javier Cámara is impeccable (…) he’s spontaneous, funny and brilliant all at once.”

Carlos BOYERO, EL PAÍS

“The contribution of film director and screenwriter David Trueba to the festival—this tender, luminous comedy—is truly welcome; a tremendously necessary film for lightening up the darker areas of the Official Section (…) A wonderful and intelligent entertainment.”

Angel Aldarondo, BERRIA

“David Trueba took the audience on an emotional journey to 1960s Spain and received thunderous applause at the matinee screening.”

Oskar L.Belategui, EL CORREO

“Pure joy from start to finish. A feel-good film that uses real anecdotes intelligently, flirts with Beatlemania and admirably captures the ingenuous, freedom-seeking spirit of the sixties in Spain.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“Extraordinary performance from Javier Cámara in a role that seems to have been made for him and which probably only he could play.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“A film that’s easy to watch and recommended for all audiences. It will probably be a box-office hit and the Spanish comedy film of the year. A great hymn to fearless living and human kindness.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“Superb performance from Javier Cámara.

Mitxel Ezquiaga, EL DIARIO VASCO

“The amazing thing about this is the capacity to make a film out of the lyrics of a song. And David Trueba manages to create an epic out of Strawberry Fields Forever.

Mikel Insausti, GARA

“It creates an impact with the sudden certainty that this film by the screenwriter, film director and novelist is Trueba through and through, an authoritative voice eternally embarked on the endeavour of responding to adversity with human insubordination and vitality.”

Pedro Vallín, LA VANGUARDIA


“A film so warm and human that even those bleak white bones in the cruel desert seem to throb with love and hope.”

B.T., EL DIARIO VASCO
