  1. bryanvmh's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Elegantly unsubtle, fabulously unwieldy, and uncomfortably beautiful.

  2. João Paulo Andrade's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    É sobre o cancelamento das emoções e dos afetos, da impossibilidade de vivê-los novas formas de amar, de uma castração, de uma incompletude, Lelio filma a trajetória de uma mulher a quem é negado aquele que talvez seja o limiar da dignidade humana: o luto. Uma performance que remete todo o momento a essa condição de uma plenitude negada, imagens que evocam essa instabilidade e silenciamento.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    The casting of Daniela Vega truly makes this timely tale authentic, moving and intelligent while married to the excellent scripting by Lelio and Maza. The humiliations and trials that Marina is subjected to when her lover dies are unjust and anger inducing but so true in a society that still shuns at heart the transgender community with an unwillingness to provide empathy or understanding. Kudos.

  6. Domiziana's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

  7. S.J.B.'s rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Well edited with some nice, albeit rudimentary, symbolic imagery, but is ultimately anti-climatic, unable to carry its suspense and conflict through to the end. Vega is a bit stoic, but perhaps that was part of the characterisation — the film is without a doubt confused about its tone. Sorry Francisco Reyes had to die so soon into the narrative; he's great and their chemistry even better.

  9. bulletproof isobel's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    a fantastic film indeed, dreamlike realism with a soul.

  10. the_mentaculus's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    In some respects, a watershed film - there is an overall sensitivity to the theme that provides needed maturity (and sensitivity especially to Daniela Vega, who may have one of this year's best performances. The camera loves her face like all classical films should). Yet the film falls into caricature in just the wrong moments, and never quite knows how to tackle its magical realism. Just on the verge of greatness.

  11. uenus's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Me da pena encontrar que la actuación sea pésima aún si la justifican con ella y su coraza. Sentí que se veía un personaje débil y el pequeño enojo era de alguien de 13 años. El dialogo está hecho con la punta del pico. Las escenas más raras parecen una burla dentro del contexto. Si gana el Oscar es sólo por lo mediático, lo trans y no porque la película esté bien hecha

  13. HAD!L's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    2.5 It makes you think and examine sexuality in a very humane sense, but then it proves a point...which makes it quite dated....in a few years when the dust has settled for the issue, it will be another movie about transgenders not a good movie about a struggle

  14. José Neves's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Digital. Marina / Daniela Vega carries the same facies a whole movie, carrying the film with her, not exactly a complicity between camera and actress but rather a dependency of that one in relation to this one, that already came from "Gloria", but here oversized to the ridiculous final, only possible because cinematographic ideas the film does not present any. Social area, and that's all.

  16. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    It's a great movie and somehow reminded me of hitchcock.

  17. vordven's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

  18. BernardoL's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    A humanizing portrayal of a trans woman that's really well executed with a solid performance by Daniela Vega. The story feels very subdued but it really works that way. Some of the visual metaphors could have been a little more subtle but other than that, this is a great film regardless of what one may think about the concept of "transgender".

  19. ig_____or's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Kudos to the director for casting the amazing Daniela Vega in the leading role instead of a cisgender actor/actress (Hollywood, I'm looking at you!), can't wait to see her during this awards season! The club scene was stellar and so was the gust of wind in the street and all the visions of deceased Orlando. Marina's silences and gestures spoke volumes, what a mesmerising character.

  20. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Daniela Vega is a revelation while wearing an almost constant and stoic expression of rage as an armor. The way the actress finds small expressive variations that illuminate the inner self of her character without ever violating her dignity or intimacy is a miracle. The script and direction can be surprisingly prosaic in structure and symbolism, but are also full of intelligent restraint when it matters most.

  21. Daniel Roque's rating of the film A Fantastic Woman

    Thank you Sebastian Lelio and Daniela Vega for accurately portraying what I feel when my jam comes on in that club scene.
