Critic Reviews for Julieta
Exploding off the screen in a blast of colour and compassion, Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of 2016's cinematic treasures.
Despite its shorter length, the film never feels unfulfilled or abbreviated. Its terrific performances, beautiful narrative, and haunting score... are so immersive that decades of life go by without it ever dragging.
Suárez gives a searing performance in the lead role, her grief overwhelming her to the point where she physically wears it on her body.
Almodóvar makes a game effort to replicate Munro's complex, nonchronological storytelling, though the three tales don't hang together as well as one might hope.
Julieta is superb, and to say any more could potentially ruin any number of its more intimate surprises.
Audience Reviews for Julieta
I don't know what is so revelatory about what Julieta wants to tell her daughter, all I know for sure is that this corny soap opera feels more like a cheap excuse for Almodóvar to tell whatever comes to his mind even if he doesn't really seem to have anything to say.
Sophisticated but schmaltzy and formulaic. There is no emotional payoff for our investment in the characters.
