      Robert Abele Los Angeles Times For discerning moviegoers, the affably disorienting "Hermia & Helena" might just be the right kind of midsummer night's dreaminess. Jul 13, 2017 Full Review Nick Allen RogerEbert.com Hermia & Helena presents a unique anomaly -- it's able to capture life at its most low-key but still manages to exemplify style over substance. Rated: 2/4 May 26, 2017 Full Review Ignatiy Vishnevetsky AV Club Part of the charm of Hermia & Helena is in the way it freely and randomly plays with form, employing luxuriantly slow dissolves, unexpected snatches of superimposed text, and even a black-and-white film-within-the-film. Rated: B May 26, 2017 Full Review Vadim Rizov Filmmaker Magazine This is the definition of what I think of as an “open” film...the pleasure is in the freedom to think, speculate and be continuously surprised. Jan 12, 2023 Full Review Dustin Chang ScreenAnarchy It seems with Hermia & Helena, Piñeiro is upping the ante a little bit and put more cinematic playfulness in his small ways. And it's lovely. Jul 17, 2020 Full Review Tori Brazier One Room With A View It's a bloated plot where not much happens, and the only development of consequence comes near the film's end, apropos of nothing. Rated: 2/5 Mar 13, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      william m Hermia & Helena are two pining lovers in Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream,' and that's about the last you'll hear of them in this film about a gaggle of arty 20-somethings rattling between fellowships in New York and home in Buenos Aires. We can't really follow their non-adventures because of the non-existent plot and the long baffling flashbacks. Not that we care. Camila and pals are uncommitted to anything much and they never develop, not even when Camila meets for the first time her father, who abandoned her mother during pregnancy. Their meeting is bland and fruitless; neither notices. There's Style by the long ton, though: a disorienting opening with people flitting in and out of the frame at close range; bits of Shakespeare's text, complete with translator's notes, pasted on screen; big close-ups [the one of the man easting a glazed doughnut is given meaning by overheard cellphone conversations]; and like that. A loud ragtime-piano score kept me awake through most of this failed undergraduate film-school project.
