Verónica

Paco Plaza Spain, 2017

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Veronica

To be honest, its genericism, insufficient grip in drama/horror, and sparse pathos fully lost me around the 45-minute mark, making it impossible to focus and thus read the subtitles. I couldn't tell you if it got better. But, I frankly don't care even if it did... that amount of time is too long to not entice the viewer. Frankly, the script needed to have undergone rewrites. Plaza, unfortunately, stumbled here.
