Critics reviews

I haven’t seen the other versions, but this picture is well acted (one of the cast members, Manuel García-Rulfo, has a growing profile in Hollywood; he was seen last year in “Widows” and “Sicario: Day of the Soldado”) and maintains narrative interest without ever grabbing the viewer by the lapels.

Caro’s ability to localize what might feel broad shines through, even though he is operating within set storytelling boundaries.

  • Dan's rating of the film Perfectos Desconocidos

    If you enjoyed Casa de Las Flores and whatever Manolo Caro is trying to do - you'll dig this. It's almost painfully slight and some dialogue is way too obvious but Cecilia Suarez remains a delight and someone literally starts to pour tequila on their face and I was there for that. The third * is for said tequila on face/actual gasp I elicited at one point.
