  • The Spanish actress Marina Gatell is exotic and engaging as a young writer drawn to Lorca and puzzled why he is not drawn to her in return. show more

  • Ashes makes no claims to be an entirely accurate biopic; it's a speculative, impressionistic portrait without a lot of dramatic force or psychological depth. But it's an elegantly designed film that fascinates as often as it frustrates. show more

  • Little Ashes is absorbing but not compelling. Most of its action is inward. show more

    I thoroughly enjoyed the film (it was beautiful), and recommend it because it makes one want to know more about the artists, and that era - be it book, film, documentary, whatever.

    This is a beautiful movie! Robert Pattinson did a remarkable job portraying Dali\'s mannerisms - I was reminded so much of the Dali that I had seen on TV during my growing up years. He nailed Dali\'s narcissism and decision to choose becoming a celebrity over artistic integrity and human relationships. Javier Beltran played Federico Garcia Lorca wonderfully! I have my fingers crossed that we will get to see much more of him in English speaking movies. After watching this film, I have been moved to learn all that I can about Lorca, Dali, and Bunuel and the time in history that they lived. Little Ashes goes down as one of my all-time favorites!

    I clicked 5 stars instead of 1 star, so I actually upgraded a movie that should be giving 1 star or less!
