Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: You have been privy to a series of seductive, ephemeral moments, drawn into the eternal rhythm of youth and connected with something old and durable, one name for which is art.
Fresh: Pineiro gracefully layers a melange of Spanish-translated Shakespearean dialogue atop snatches of original conversation without clarifying his citations, blending characters and performances so that the texts intermingle ...
Fresh: A movie that leaves us with a smile on our faces but also more than a few thoughts in our heads.
Fresh: A Buenos Aires production of "Twelfth Night" is point of departure for a buoyant examination of love's labor's lost offstage.
Thought this was going to be interesting but it really made me fall asleep, I think the movie is just enormously boring.
Nothing to grasp
Take out the story and the environment, leave the actors and the cinematographer, shake the writer up a little and we might have something.
