      Simran Hans Observer (UK) The film is less a romcom than it is a coming-of-age movie about slacker Rakel finally being forced to grow up. Rated: 4/5 Sep 12, 2021 Full Review Ariel Klinghoffer Little White Lies A story of a woman's commitment to her needs and desires that allows itself to have fun. Rated: 3/5 Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian On paper, some of this sounds irritatingly quirky, but it's a film that really offers an honest look at a woman's life... Rated: 4/5 Sep 8, 2021 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Differentiating itself from Juno's puritan discourse, Ninjababy finds a safe space to consider a woman's options outside of having a traditional family, and on top of that, it's fun. A well-rounded work. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 30, 2022 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) ... Committed and original, alternative and in some ways complacent. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 10, 2022 Full Review Mariona Borrull Fotogramas Centers on anguish and fear, and the usual shitstorm that befall upon us after making important decisions. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jun 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
