Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Salles directs simply and watchfully, with an eye that seems to penetrate all the characters who are encountered on Dora's and Josue's journey.
Fresh: A richly tender and moving experience.
Fresh: [Salles'] imagery, like his storytelling, is clear, often unaffectedly lovely, and quietly, powerfully haunting.
Fresh: As beautiful as it is wrenching.
Great sad movie with brilliant performance of Fernanda Montenegro. Beautiful music within the whole movie. For those who likes something different from the Hollywood-standard Films!!!
Just the best...
