      Isa A compelling movie in the magical realism tradition. The message of the film will challenge you, especially if youre thinking about our current ecological crisis. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/28/23 Full Review Colin L This is a nice movie to watch, the story line is interesting Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/07/23 Full Review tensionkoh s Very good movie!!! You guys all should watch this fantastic movie!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review Ravenswood R Flaky conceptual weirdness that strives to make points about generational tensions and conflicts, inheritances, death, life, pollution, dreams, reality, relationships, sex and gender identity, communication, sadness, love, family, nature, humanity, mysticism, and maybe a few other things. An effort which is tedious, overstuffed and overwrought, which amounts to not very much in the end. At times interesting, and at other times weighed down by superficial, surrealistic attempts at meaning. Hippies and/or juggalos might think this is intelligent and insightful, but of course, there you have it - it is a little dopey. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/08/23 Full Review Leon Y Happy to watching on it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/03/23 Full Review Siaw Y Actually it's a good movie to be honest, quite meaningful story, and I honestly recommend everyone should go and have a watch, worth watching it.

      Chloe Roddick Sight & Sound In spite of its missteps, The Cow Who Sang is an assured first feature that gently weaves an intimate, personal story about motherhood, family, trauma and loss into a wider fable about environmental ruin... Dec 9, 2023 Full Review Ty Burr Ty Burr's Watch List There are moments of eerie movie magic here as well as a pervasive didacticism and at least one scene that’s lit like a telenovela. Alegria is one to watch, though, and so is the movie if you’re feeling chancy. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 4, 2023 Full Review Carlos Aguilar Los Angeles Times With finely tuned magical realist sensibilities, first-time writer-director Francisca Alegria launches into a hauntingly atmospheric tale that denounces humanity’s untenable relationship with the natural world. May 25, 2023 Full Review Alessandra Rangel InSession Film At the center of the story, both Mia Maestro and Leonor Varela give heart-breaking and contrasting performances. Dec 9, 2023 Full Review Nuha Hassan Nuha Hassan A riveting tale of family drama and environment that provides a hopeful and thoughtful ending. Sep 8, 2023 Full Review Emily Maskell A Good Movie To Watch Hope lingers that it’s not too late for Magdalena’s family to wake up to the world around them, and maybe it’s possible for us to do the same.
