Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "La Jaula de Oro" may seem like a rehash of old news. But don't be deceived.
Fresh: Adding a welcome dynamism to the unobtrusive silent-witness storytelling approach so much in vogue on the international art-cinema scene, Quemada-Diez assembles "La jaula de oro" out of moments rich in action, humor and intrigue.
Fresh: Through little dialogue, mostly improvised by the nonprofessional cast, Quemada-Diez creates much compassion toward his young travelers and the emotional truths they uncover.
Fresh: Quemada-Diez's approach emphasizes nature and naturalism, and the film never pretends that this adventure isn't dangerous and terrifying.
