“One of the best films featured at this year’s festival, it challenges the viewer to fill in its blanks”.

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“German director Christian Petzold moves us with this story of a woman whose face has been disfigured by the Nazis”.

Ricardo Aldarondo, EL DIARIO VASCO

“(…) without doubt one of the most outstanding films at this year’s festival.”

Darío Prieto / Luis Martínez, EL MUNDO

“The ending is as powerful as it is sad, and it is one of those that you never forget.”

Carlos Boyero, EL PAÍS

“Without doubt the best film screened so far in the battle for the Golden Shell.”

Nando Salvà, EL PERIÓDICO


“Disconnected mirrors, a metanarrative, Russian dolls, and a strange mixture of cinema, theatre and opera, ‘Casanova Variations’ depicts the last days of the great Venetian seducer’s life in almost two hours of film.”

Alberto Moyano, EL DIARIO VASCO

“(…) one of its great strengths is the vitality of the Mozart pieces - ‘The Marriage of Figaro’, ‘Don Giovanni’ and ‘Cosifantutte’ - which are perfectly interwoven with the story that is being told.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO


“(…) Shim Sung-bo excels in his description of what remains when there is nothing left. A superb tribute to chaos.”

Darío Prieto / Luis Martínez, EL MUNDO

“(…) adroitly engineers a series of narrative twists and turns that are capable of making us flit between laughter and astonishment in a heartbeat.”

Nando Salvà, EL PERIÓDICO

“Shim Sung-bo’s directorial debut is a truly impactful piece which distinguishes him as a loyal exponent of the style embodied by his mentor Bong Joon-ho.”

M.I., GARA

“A spectacular production, a special brand of humour, and an inevitable propensity for violence. These are just some of the film’s components, and they are complimented by smatterings of commentary about the current social landscape”.

Gontzal Agote, BERRIA

“An extremely well-woven plot and splendid characterisation make this film a serious award contender”.

Carlos Pumares, LA RAZÓN


“It tells the story of a politician with a heart and takes a brilliantly witty view of the ‘absurd’ aspects of the Basque conflict”.

O.L. Belategui, EL CORREO

“‘Negociador’ exudes a tone of good cinema that is both bitter and tragic”.

Begoña del Teso, EL DIARIO VASCO

“Exemplary in its production (…) and with some truly delicious dialogue, (…) it is a comedy that presents an almost puppet-like image of characters and situations”.

K.L. GARA


“The feeling of writing and creating is infused with a soft scent of bandages and dressing, with a sense of scarring hanging in the air”.

Oti R. Marchante, ABC

“The documentary ‘La búsqueda’ (…) moved audiences during its screening at the San Sebastian Film Festival.”

MagdalenaTsanis, GIPUZKOA


“Lucchesi’s use of simplicity was very well-received by the San Sebastian public”.

MagdalenaTsanis, GIPUZKOA


“An excellent documentary about a quixotic skateboarder that runs at the pace of a modern requiem. Laughing is prohibited; shuddering is allowed”.

Víctor Esquirol, GARA


“Poetic and intimate, it symbolises the awakening of adolescents to life and, at the same time, a goodbye to life in perfect communion with nature”.

Koldo Landaluze, GARA


“What lends Marshland heft is its political nuance and outstanding art direction, both of which seem unlikely to go unnoticed in the international marketplace.”

Fionnuala Halligan, SCREENDAILY.COM


“Banderas is nicely intense and low-key as the reluctant and unlikely hero, taking it all suitably seriously and handling the action moments with appropriate ease.”

Fionnuala Halligan, SCREENDAILY.COM
