Hector A. Gonzalez InSession Film The provocative and occasionally telenovela-like La Pietà (La Piedad) has Eduardo Casanova dwelling once again, for better or worse, on exploitation and vulgarity. Rated: C+ Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Milagros Amondaray La Nación (Argentina) Casanova doesn't use his clear virtuosity to serve the story, but simply lingers in pretentious passages, captivated by his own creatures yet unable to say much about them. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2/5 Mar 8, 2023 Full Review Juan Pablo Russo EscribiendoCine For better or worse, this unclassifiable piece results in a work defies any expectations. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Mar 3, 2023 Full Review Mariona Borrull Fotogramas Casanova ranges between anguishing aesthetics and unbearable exploitation. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) La Pietà is disappointing. Not because of its provocation, which remains firm, but because of its emptiness. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Jorge Loser Espinof La Pietà is funny, sick, wild, sometimes childish in its attempt to empathize, and vulgar, though no less brilliant or tragically comic for it.
