  2. sacajawèale's rating of the film Madonna and Child

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Madonna and Child

    Nuevamente en este mediometraje Terence Davies se decide a contemplar desde dos planos: el pasado y el presente. Tucker es un hombre maduro, pero atrás de él, la adolescencia ha convocado una serie de conflictos. La sociedad y la intimidad son los dos canales en que el adulto Tucker justifica sus conflictos inconfesables. La represión es un asunto que se ha venido institucionalizando en su vida.

  4. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Madonna and Child

    An unbearable, often disturbing film, though one that dares the audience to find humour in the absurdity of the character's situation. His attempts to gain entrance to a S&M club, or the desperation that leads him to contemplate tattooing his genitals just to feel the touch of another human being, builds on a certain comedy of embarrassment, but also leaves us unprepared for the cry of anguish that closes the film.
