José Neves's rating of the film La Siesta del Tigre

Unlike Trapero's mess, we have a clever not noisy observation of the people and little camera movements that are doing much more expressiveness, exactly because of that territorial reserve: either of cinematic expression, either of filmed space. The final part, on its way to magical realism, gives us an unusual material perspective of it, through the footage of natural elements: a craving for fable and its space(s).
