What are people saying?

  • Nelson Núñez's rating of the film La familia

    Una de las mejores películas venezolanas de los últimos tiempos. Con un enfoque cinematográfico que recuerda el cine de los Dardenne, Gustavo Rondón nos muestra la violencia, mezquindad, corrupción y fuerte contraste social que signan buena parte de la vida en Caracas. Afortunadamente, el discurso logra trascender el pesimismo inherente a su relato y ofrece un resquicio de esperanza al final.

  • okty1's rating of the film La familia

    4/5 Powerful neo-realist drama that explores the role of fatherhood in the absence of the typical dominant maternal figure in the violent Venezuelan society. Its characters inhabit the capital of the socialist country portrayed in all its grim and contradictory reality, a city without hope for redemption. Beautiful photography, amazing performances.
