      Ben Sachs Chicago Reader A relaxed pace and a gentle tone, allowing the themes of guilt and repressed longing to resonate, and his sympathy toward all the characters creates a winning sense of goodwill. Sep 21, 2017 Full Review Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times Languages have magic - dead or dying ones most of all - and some of that sorcery has made it onto the screen in the evocatively titled Mexican feature "I Dream in Another Language." Aug 3, 2017 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety Poetic Mexican film raises philosophical questions about what is lost when a language - and by extension, our elders' memory - is allowed to fade away unpreserved. Jul 30, 2017 Full Review Ernesto Diezmartinez Cine Vértigo Beyond the fact that the story has some originality in the cultural context of the film, the truth is that the movie becomes repetitive. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 1.5/4 May 23, 2018 Full Review Alejandro Alemán El Universal I Dream in Another Language is a wonderful film on life, love and the passage of time, but also tolerance and acceptance of oneself. [Full Review in Spanish] Apr 25, 2018 Full Review Arturo Magaña Cine Premiere With what is perhaps his best film so far, [director Ernesto Contreras] also creates an impeccable film with a powerful love story that shows the great technical and intellectual capacity of Mexican cinema. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4.5/5 Apr 23, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
