What are people saying?

  • Viginti_tres's rating of the film Finding Altamira

    You know a film is good when you have to add it to Mubi. A genuinely interesting story shot quite well in the beautiful scenery of the Spanish north coast, let down by a script whose gears only clunk and never turn. If only it were Werner and not Hudson who had decided to put on this show.

  • dan's rating of the film Finding Altamira

    Not sure why it has so poor ratings(I found this movie very solid),maybe the absence of a terrible hero or its anti-climax. The movie does not cater to the PR themes that are abundant in European cinema-we see Marcelino being attacked by both creationist and evolutionist groups. There is good deal of how a scientific exploration develops, a nice family story, human drama and all this is combined with great artistry.
