Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The debut feature from the Venezuelan director Jorge Thielen Armand, La Soledad is remarkably assured, even as it blurs the lines between fiction and reality by casting real people in not-so-real situations.
Fresh: This promising debut feature opens up gradually, like a fragrant but potentially poisonous night-blooming flower.
Fresh: Startling as much for its existence as for its merits.
Fresh: Gains potency in the mind as a full-bodied portrait of a country in dangerous decline.
A Must Watch Latinamerican Film!
La Soledad is a masterpiece! Thielen and Michelangeli have managed to beautifully capture the struggle to survive in the context of the crumbling Venezuelan economy. They have managed to assemble a history that feels more of a documentary than a fiction movie but embelished with all the characteristics of magical realism.
A subtle mirror of venezuelan reality
La Soledad reflects the crumbling venezuelan economy and quality of life on a very subtle way, without explicity stating it. The documentary style with real life "actors" gives it new way of giving life to a character. A must see.
