      J. Hoberman Viola, [Matias] Piñeiro's latest film is his most accomplished film to date, at once lucid and opaque using an amateur, all-female production of Shakespeare's cross-dressing comedy Twelfth Night. Feb 22, 2019 Full Review Tom Keogh Seattle Times Pieiro's bold but graceful camera movements, exploring space with unselfconscious joy, speak to a young filmmaker's emerging mastery. Rated: 3.5/4 Oct 31, 2013 Full Review Mark Feeney Boston Globe A Buenos Aires production of "Twelfth Night" is point of departure for a buoyant examination of love's labor's lost offstage. Rated: 3/4 Sep 12, 2013 Full Review Nicholas Bell Viola is an oddly mesmerizing film that gently asks to be taken in as more a mysterious theatrical poem than something of traditional narrative lineage. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 4, 2020 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row The suspense of waiting for the key moment becomes one of the film's defining moments, and the denouement manages to be both joyous and heartbreaking. Rated: 3/4 Aug 7, 2019 Full Review Dennis Lim Artforum If many recent art films have made prominent use of nonactors, typically cast as some version of themselves, Pineiro's beguiling, hyperverbal movies revel in the transportive potential -- and sheer pleasure -- of actors acting.

      Audience Member Strange, inadequate 65 minute "movie" about several Buenos Aires women chattering incessantly about love and love affairs. They are actresses in a sort of semi-pro production of the Shakespeare play, Twelfth Night. So they're often shown reciting their lines, on or off stage (not costumed). Some mild but boring Lesbian interest here...not offensive. Male writer/director Matias Pineiro strikes me as unhealthily obsessed with all this girltalk (which of course he's supplying for the actresses). Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Es rara, pero termina siendo graciosa cuando entre tanta palabra queda una satisfacción en la nada. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member What a complete waste of time! Wonder who is going to play the lead when they remake this shit in Hollywood... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews
