Village Voice
Poetry refracts life; this film can only reflect it, and tritely at that. Full Review
Deborah Young
The Hollywood Reporter
It would be hard to find two more contrasting actresses than Otto and Pires, but Barreto plays off their differences in culture and personality. Full Review
Diego Costa
Slant Magazine
Bruno Barreto's insistence that this pass for a product that Hollywood might have spawned smoothens a journey built on sharp edges. Full Review
Guy Lodge
Attention is retained by the commendably unhistrionic leads, who convincingly etch the pair’s enduring devotion even when passions run dry. Full Review
Nicolas Rapold
The New York Times
Ms. Otto conveys a double-edged intelligence as the film’s pinched notion of “Elizabeth Bishop in Brazil,” while Ms. Pires strides about, every snap judgment and grand gesture a measure of her appeal. Both are hemmed in by direction and a screenplay that are relentlessly on point (as well as an off-the-shelf score). Full Review
