      Ben Kenigsberg New York Times If Piñeiro's Shakespeare citations have sometimes freighted slight stories with unearned significance, "Isabella" finds him expanding his formal ambition. Aug 26, 2021 Full Review David Ehrlich indieWire Piñeiro's cinema is too lush and vibrant to feel like work, but the catharsis he arranges for us here isn't enough to offset how this film's puzzle box approach disserves the subjective interiority that "Isabella" tries to solve with it. Rated: C+ Sep 28, 2020 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker Leapfrogs through time, and through performances and productions, with a whimsically graceful yet intimately passionate cinematic imagination. Sep 22, 2020 Full Review Fernando E. Juan Lima Otroscines.com Piñeiro's cinema is based on the pleasure of the experience itself. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 10/10 Dec 7, 2021 Full Review Diego Batlle Otroscines.com [Matías Piñeiro's] most radical, abstract, introspective, cryptic and elusive film to date. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Dec 6, 2021 Full Review Alejandro Lingenti La Nación (Argentina) Overflows with beauty when set against the lovely Córdoba province's landscape. Rated: 4/5 Dec 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
