“The Jon Garaño/Jose Mari Goenaga tandem blossoms in the film’s everyday lyricism. The pair already worked together on ‘For 80 days’, but Flowers is a more rounded, richer, more profound piece.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“(…) a feeling of intrigue and a sense that I was watching something that was as attractive as it was unconventional.”

Carlos Boyero, EL PAÍS

“‘Flowers’ offers an extraordinary narrative, supreme attention to detail, and a richly creative use of music.”

Mikel Insausti, GARA

“Simplicity transformed into art.”

Carlos Pumares, LA RAZÓN

“They manage to take something small and imbue it with vastness, using an exquisite narrative pace to tell the story of a simple woman who finds and accepts small things to hang onto in her unhappiness ...”

Oti R. Marchante, ABC

“The two directors turns this seemingly minimal story into gold by taking such intricate care over each scene and magnificently managing the rhythm and development of the story”.

Gontzal Agote, BERRIA

“The best feature of ‘Flowers’ is the elegance in which it is filmed, with exquisite taste in photography and melancholic music by Pascal Gaigne”.

Oskar L. Belategui, EL CORREO


“(…) a Romanian film by a debut director, Alexander Nanau, which offers a good example of how this year’s harvest of Eastern cinema continues to yield interesting works.”

Ricardo Aldarondo, EL DIARIO VASCO


“Cristián Jiménez, a past winner of the Films In Progress award, manages to explore family relationships with naturalness and a certain sparkle, with dialogue crammed with friction, quarrels, and implied meanings.”

Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO

“(…) the flair and cleverness of this family story cannot be denied (…)”

Pedro Vallín, LA VANGUARDIA

“An attempt at freshness, a good construction of characters and situations”

Oti R. Marchante, ABC


“Moving images and interviews, and sequences rich in metaphors and audiovisual elements, make this debut a work of excellence.”

Iratxe Fresneda, GARA

“This is a fine, carefully-made piece which delves deep into its subject and its subjects.”

Begoña del Teso, EL DIARIO VASCO


“Above all else, it is a human story, sad and fun at the same time, which manages to transcend the boundaries of sport and geopolitics...”

Víctor Esquirol, GARA


“(…) the composition that arises out of its respective characters is a true lesson in intensity, sympathy, and emotion that is difficult to forget.”

Koldo Landaluze, GARA


“Filled with silences and poetry (...)”

Magdalena Tsanis / Efe, NOTICIAS DE GIPUZKOA


“I like the construction of the spaces in which it takes place. I am seduced by those lateral meanderings, nearly swept away, along those empty(?) places along which the film’s characters come and go, and which they inhabit”.

Begoña del Teso, EL DIARIO VASCO


"(…) so persuasively does debut director-actor Thomas Salvador immerse the viewer in his imaginative world that it seduces entirely, in a silent comedy kind of way, before running out of breath over the final straight."

Jonathan Holland, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER


“(…) is sometimes humorous, sometimes touching, and always respectful.”

Jonathan Holland, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER


“It cannot be denied that it is a sound, interesting film, with the director showing that he is capable of maintaining the suspense right up until the end.”

Beñat Eizagirre Indo, BERRIA


“(…) a delicate finale that's puckish, poignant and piquant.”

Neil Young, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
