      Stephen Garrett Time Out Rated: 4/6 Feb 3, 2007 Full Review V.A. Musetto New York Post [Director Julia] Solomonoff draws out vivid performances by Valeria Bertuccelli (Elena) and Ingrid Rubio (Natalia) that make up for the script's predictability. Rated: 3/4 Dec 8, 2006 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times The ghost of 1970s Argentina haunts 1980s Texas in this perceptive and beautifully acted drama from the Argentine director Julia Solomonoff. Rated: 4/5 Dec 5, 2006 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide Solomonoff cuts back and forth between 1984 and 1976, gradually revealing the truth of what happened, but the mystery is less important than the complex relationship between Natalia and Elena, which was sorely tested by events beyond their control. Rated: 3/4 Dec 8, 2006 Full Review Phil Hall Film Threat Solomonoff's screenplay unwisely telegraphs key events long before they turn up on screen, and her direction is so slovenly that the film often feels like a surveillance video with English subtitles. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 1, 2006 Full Review Laura Kelly South Florida Sun-Sentinel Sisters (Hermanas) tends toward the melodramatic, but has a lot to say about the struggle to accept the past in order to move forward. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 9, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Two Argentine sisters both come to terms with one another with their harrowing pasts while dealing with culture clashes with their newfound home in the United States. Well-acted and very interesting to watch, however the tone becomes somewhat muddled near the film´s coda and starts to lose a lot of the dramatic realism that it was shooting for in the beginning. Still, as a family drama more-or-less, it certainly works and thankfully enough isn´t too complicated to understand until the political thriller elements come well into play. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Los rastros de la dictadura aun son latentes en estas dos hermanas que la afrontaron de maneras diversas pero que sin duda ninguna se ha podido olvidar de ella Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member nice movie, im always wayching movies about the "Desaparecidos" but i have never seen the other side of the story, the ones that had to leave and couldnt go back to their country.. and Milton del Canal superb as usual, for such a young kid he takes all the pricez...
