Critics reviews

The film’s rigorous mise-en-scènecreates a consistent pattern out of systematic spatial ruptures, which generates a cubist experience of space, and a dramatic tension built on the accumulation of small surprises that are patiently gleaned by Eduardo Escorel’s editing. The result is an unlikely eisesteinian film, in which drama is mostly a result of ingenious graphic tension.
