Cinematic-ally and artistically this is a beautiful and powerful film. Shot fully in black and white with a talented cast, one who enjoys independent film making that provides a slice of life and a realistic look at political climates will enjoy this film. CuarĂ³n has nicely mastered matching panoramic views with those that look like detailed paintings. Must see on a full screen that offers crisp definition. Considering this is Yalitza Apraricio’s first film (lead), she deservs all the accolades she is receiving. However, for the populous, this may be too slow moving and require some research prior to viewing. For that reason, can’t quite rate it date night worthy.
