  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film Ixcanul

    La sequenza in cui parla dell'aborto con la madre è bella...

  2. grotesc's rating of the film Ixcanul

  3. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Ixcanul

    The movie's elliptical structure suggests that the never ending cycle of exploitation and deception is yet another kind of curse inflicted upon the poor. Hope turns into resignation. The volcano, like the social consciousness of the subordinate classes, seems on the brink of erupting, but never does. Revolution postponed. Nespresso wins.

  4. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Ixcanul

  5. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Ixcanul

    ... absorbs our attention not only through the genuine characters and their deep emotions but also with the beauty of the location and the culture associated with the story.

  6. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Ixcanul

    There's definitely truth and respect in the way this Honduran community is represented.

  7. Alex's rating of the film Ixcanul

  8. tjim's rating of the film Ixcanul

    Just because there are some indigenous people in a movie doesn't mean the movie would be good. In my opinion this was a pretty pointless and boring movie, but luckily only 90 minutes long.

  9. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Ixcanul

    A powerful story with powerful cinematography. The moments on the volcano were haunting, the scenes with the daughter and the mother washing were touching and almost mystical, the sudden rush of the city bleak and detached. Maria Mercedes Coroy makes a wonderful screen debut as the despaired but strong-willed girl who wants more from her life than the village can offer and has to pay a high price for her aspirations.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film Ixcanul

    FNC '15 Powerful debut feature from Bustamante that reflects on the vulnerability of the indigenous people of Guatemala in an universal tale easily identified with. A coffee plantation worker's daughter finds herself abandoned and pregnant first having to deal with the boss/fiancé and then with the bureaucracy of government who speak a language her family doesn't understand. The snakes of modern life approach.

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Ixcanul

    "...un drama inclinado a sembrar la incertidumbre. Desde el plan nupcial por conveniencia, la posible fuga a EEUU con un amante, la expulsión de las serpientes que infestan los sembríos, un embarazo que originaría un desalojo o un conjuro chamánico como última opción para reclamar la propiedad. Bustamante motiva la esperanza, mas en el camino la va diluyendo..."

  14. Yuri La's rating of the film Ixcanul

    Ritratto misurato di una umile famiglia contadina del Guatemala, tra usi e costumi della tradizione e speranze future di vita. Lo sguardo della protagonista trattiene in sè i riflessi di una prospettiva macchiata dal dolore e rassegnata in un piano deciso in buona fede ma subìto.

  15. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film Ixcanul

    Excelente pelicula Guatemalteca que logra intimar con los personajes y una muy bien lograda fotografía. Muy recomendada
