Roma

There are periods in history that scar societies and moments in life that transform us as individuals.


Roma
Top director Cuarón’s most personal film to date arrives bearing numerous awards and nominations. We follow a year in the life of a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighbourhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. The critics were thoroughly impressed, as were the public. In Spanish with English subtitles.

135 minutes.

What the Critics say

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconAnd thus the film somewhat vexes me in that the lack of much of a story means some or maybe even a lot of everyday viewers will grow bored and quit watching before the 135-minute runtime is up. But art-house aficionados and most critics will fall prey, like me, to the mesmerizing and apparently haunting look and feel of the production that has yet to leave my memory whereas other films I’ve seen have long since disappeared into the void. Accordingly, I might have to watch it again to get a better sense of the quality of the overall production.
