Everything is surrounded by misery due to the Balkan conflict and actual economic crisis, but Rahima’s love for her brother will give her strength and hope to fight for a decent and honest life. Even if she has to face social class differences, religious prejudices or slanders. Review

Lore is subtle but incisive, proving that no fuss is needed to make a competent film. Its meaningful story, acute images, and immense heart, were enough to make it special. Review

Even employing a primitive approach, it managed to bestow some freshness to an old and recurring tale. Review

It’s A Disaster didn't spark a lot of laughs but let out some amusing energy with its screwball tone and laudable finale. Review

Soderbergh expressed his versatility through designed camera plans and magnificent close-ups, highlighting the coldness of the characters, but never neglecting the gripping atmosphere. Reliable side effects are guaranteed from watching this one. Review

It was a shame that the movie hadn’t totally assumed the weirdness suggested in some moments, opting instead for a more formulaic approach. Positive aspects: the performances, and Robert Duvall's magnificent trip on LSD. Recommended with reservations. Review

Unstable and unemotional, Dormant Beaut" counts with good performances but doesn't add anything relevant to the matters in question. Review

A strange, dazzling light was used within a simple direction, in a respectable film where the ideas reign in detriment of technical details. Review

Joyful moments aren’t abundant in a depressing film that carries ‘I can cope with my life’ as purpose. Review

I cannot say this is a bad movie; its story is just not thorough enough to be remembered in its genre. Still, this robotic-crime-comedy should please those who have a taste for low-key crime films with a hint of futurism. Review

The idea behind Warm Bodies has to be seen purely as amusing or comical, otherwise it would look ridicule. Although this film had the potential to be better, Jonathan Levine maintains his work interesting after the successful 50/50. Review

Jessica Chastain presented charisma while the little girl Lilly, played by the young Isabelle Nélisse, was the scariest in her look and behavior. A rather uneven paranormal tale. Review

Rhino Season is tragic and evinces a deep sadness and pain... a tough reality for all the oppressed Iranian artists. Review

Alternating among humor, seriousness and some humiliation, Modest Reception simply shows us how unpredictably people behave when confronted with money. A radical experience with an unclear conclusion. Review

Stand Up Guys will not leave its mark but is perfectly appropriate for a relaxed watching, not requiring attention to details or complex analysis about its simple story. Review

Among joys, sorrows and some nostalgia, the film provided us with so much information that sometimes was difficult to absorb it completely. Yet, it never became boring in its quirky way and hasty rhythm. Review

Promised Land is torpid in its development and despite its good intentions, turned out completely unemotional. Van Sant needed some kind of trick to win us over, just as the gas company did in the film. Review

We can’t say this is a thrilling docudrama, but spreads charm with some tasteful details. Perhaps it would have benefited if shot on black-and-white. Review

If at least Yaron Zilberman had avoided this aspect, the film would become even more inviting. Fortunately, this predisposition for sadness didn’t remove the warmness and human side shown on every relationship and performance. Review

It tried to convey a natural and unpretentious posture but it wasn’t always successful in its intents. The plot goes round and round in circles, trying to wrap every scene in smoothness while continues to extend the inevitable conclusions. Just for enthusiasts of sweet romantic dramas. Review

After 20 minutes, the story degenerated into dull situations and predictable moves, never to recover again. Goronja, the bull, ended up being the most interesting protagonist in a colorless story that failed to engage. Review

Even if you like the ingredients, you can’t taste them properly. Wrong is messy and repetitive in its approach. Rather intriguing but hardly satisfactory. Review
