Clearly the most prestigious film maker currently on the Uruguayan movie sceneKoldo Landaluze, GARA


An outstanding sensory experience. Landes strikes over and over again with the horrific absurdity of warKoldo Landaluze, GARA


The film conveys (…) the fascination of big-screen images and the intoxicating, hallucinogenic power of those points in the film leaves a lasting markOti Rodríguez Marchante, ABC

 

The lead character’s passion for cinema, the tribute to the Hollywood of the 70s (…) and his dreams and nightmares of triumph are endearing in all their crazinessRicardo Aldarondo, DIARIO VASCO


What really gives ‘Heroic Losers’ a boost is its expression of national character, the way it attaches itself to this rousing fantasy to score one for the downtrodden.Scott Tobias, VARIETY


Oren Gerner’s film has been lovingly crafted. It carefully observes Meier’s worries and creates a safe environment in which the feelings he denies are revealed to the cameraUxue Arzelus, BERRIA


Lynn + Lucy is a substantial piece of work. Skilfully shot using a square aspect ratio. It’s bare, dangerous, sullen. Boulifa’s film worksBegoña del Teso, DIARIO VASCO

 

What Boulifa and DoP Taina Galis add to the mix – thanks also to their fourhander edit – is a strikingly expressionist take on a storyLee Marshall, SCREENDAILY 


The young director has crafted the film as though it were a dance that he has choreographed. Everything we see is dance (…) it lives and breathes dance and excitesUxue Arzelus, BERRIA

 

Faultless cinematography, an unhurried film, minimalist stories but with stimulating undertonesMikel G. Gurpegui, DIARIO VASCO


The young Galician film maker Oliver Laxe once again proves one to watch with this new creative leap (…) he has reached creative maturity thanks to a highly personal and nuanced dialogueKoldo Landaluze, GARA

 

You know exactly what climax is coming in Oliver Laxe’s rustically beautiful rural parable, but its dreamy, mesmeric power lies in the waitingGuy Lodge, VARIETY


Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho is on excoriating form in his exceptional pitch-black tragicomedy about social inequality in modern Korea.” Jessica Kiang, VARIETY

 

A stimulating, entertaining and smart film that will surprise you over and over again. Don’t miss itMikel G. Gurpegui, DIARIO VASCO


An enjoyable, beautiful film brimming with attractive features. Hugely entertaining and endearing”  Mikel G. Gurpegui, DIARIO VASCO
