Pete Hammond This Cannes Festival competition entry may be too dark and depressing for mainstream audiences, but it is clearly the heartfelt and very personal achievement of a master filmmaker with a potentially award winning performance from its star.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Sometimes it's good simply to see a man who cares about the consequences of his actions.
Peter Travers The film is relentless but as riveting as the world a remarkable actor lets us see through Uxbal's eyes. Bravo, Bardem.
