“Filming the movie in one long take was a daring decision requiring meticulous planning (…) and, on this occasion, the form adapts magnificently to the storyGontzal Agote, BERRIA

On a structural level the film is a masterclass in how to make a movie without the cutting room. Without even drawing breath! As we discover in the midst of so much suffering, the cut between scenes is a relief now denied to us. You can’t look awayVictor Esquirol, GARA

Tuva Novotny’s excellent directorial debut looks at mental health and questions cinematic languageKaleem Aftab, CINEUROPA


Redemption, camaraderie and reinvention feature in a semi-unknown place that only the eye of a filmmaker as worried, sensitive and curious as Lacuesta is able to portray with both love and respectAlfonso Rivera, CINEUROPA


That such a gripping, dramatic, enigmatic and, indeed, beautiful film emerges as the result confirms this sometime cartoonist as the daring, modern, courageous, original and unique voice that asks in this film, of both himself and us, who are we, really?Alfonso Rivera, CINEUROPA


What a beautiful film from Mayfair (…) The Vietnamese director has created a beautiful contradiction: that of a young girl forced to live such a horrible life, surrounded by such beautyUxue Arzelus, BERRIA


DoP Balthazar Hertel's camerawork is more than competent, and the use of lighting, especially in nocturnal, blue and red neon-tinted scenes, makes the atmosphere ambiguousVladan Petkovic, CINEUROPA


Martín Rodríguez Redondo is the latest outstanding film maker from the Latin American new wave (…) along with a highly personal sense of pace in the film narrative make this Argentinian director one of the great discoveries of Zinemaldia 2018Carlos Loureda, FOTOGRAMAS


White-hot. Beautiful. A metaphor loaded with reality; a reality wrapped in the poetry of unknown dimensions (…) Gorgeous. Poetic. You could say fragile though supported and driven with strong styleBegoña del Teso, EL DIARIO VASCO


While the excellent work on image, editing and sound, combined with fantastic performances by the three main actors, creates a feeling of suffocation, cruelty and abuse that the viewer personally experiences both physically and mentallyAlfonso Rivera, CINEUROPA


An amazing amount of work has gone into the animation in this film from Cristóbal León and Joaquín CociñaUxue Arzelus, BERRIA


Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are stunning together in Cooper's rapturous rock 'n' roll remake (…) rapturous and swooning, but also delicate and intimate and luminousOwen Gleiberman, VARIETY


A tremendous melodrama (…) a story that twists and turns elegantlyOti Rodriguez Marchante, ABC

Captivating and stimulating Mikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO


A gutsy film made with restrained brilliance, an overwhelming spectacle brought together with seventies music and the charisma of the main actor, Lorenzo FerroMikel G. Gurpegui, EL DIARIO VASCO


“In The Sisters Brothers, Audiard creates a story reminiscent of the Coen brothers, with humour and memorable supporting characters, plenty of feeling and melancholy, and which reveals that the treasure of the Wild West dream is found along the journeyAlex Zubiria, NOTICIAS DE GUIPUZKOA


The perfect metaphor of an honest and empathetic generation (…) Oier Aranzabal has managed to gel something as difficult and intangible as poetry with epic artistic creationLuis Haranburu Altuna, EL CORREO


Delicate cinematic filigree (…) an immensely subtle theatrical and literary ensembleBegoña del Teso, EL DIARIO VASCO
