The Good Girls Directed by Alejandra Marquez Abella

Critics reviews

The mostly female creative team of THE GOOD GIRLS captures every calculation the “good girls” in this film make. An interesting score by composer Tomás Barreiro denies us the opportunity to luxuriate in their beautiful, but cold world.

Márquez Abella employs a supple visual style, rooted in Ophülsian camera movements, to convey the seductive charm of the characters’ ostentatious milieu and the graceful flexibility they need to navigate it. . . . This isn’t bad, but I wish the film’s bitter humor were more pronounced, as the social observations, when presented straight, don’t feel particularly fresh.
