      Guillem Martinez Oya Cinematismo A film about how the contemporaries issues crosses our individual lifes. [Full review in Spanish] Mar 23, 2023 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film Although Gurrea’s film is booby trapped for explosions, he repeatedly chooses the more interesting slow-burn path. Rated: 4/5 Mar 17, 2023 Full Review Randy Meeks Espinof Cork reminds us that all that glitters isn't gold, and that a move won't solve intimate problems.

[Full review in Spanish] Dec 3, 2022 Full Review Elsa Fernández-Santos El Pais (Spain) A bristly story, slightly uneven for wanting to mix too many things, but carried from beginning to end by two class performances. [Full review in Spanish] Dec 3, 2022 Full Review Nuria Vidal Cinemanía (Spain) One of the best endings in Spanish cinema demonstrating that a change in landscape is not enough to change who we really are.

      Morgan X This film didn't end up exploring the urban couples transition to a different lifestyle as I'd expected. Instead it's a bleak almost horror movie of what happens when middle class liberals try and leave normality. The acting is strong and there's some genuine moments of empathy with their lot. But the film doesn't really examine the highs and lows of their endeavour. It one sidedly descends into a tragedy that tends to play on rural sterotypes rather than explore this lifestyle and/ or contrast it with the values of city life. There's no moments of them enjoying the outdoors, pace of life, free from the neurosis and consumerism of the city. Like why have they even bothered? Ideologically the film feels very conservative in that we can't really escape market logic or colonialism arguments to the contrary are childish and easily dismissed. The couple wind up, at least aesthetically, recreating a Barcelona in the pueblo, only traumatised rather than enhanced by life outside the metropolis.
