  • Tetro turns out to be not one movie but, at the very least, two--a Fellini-esque (or Coppola-esque) concatenation of drama, dance and opera (with a nod to Alphonse Daudet), and a modest, appealing coming-of-age story that involves Maribel Verdú (from “Y Tu Mamá También”) as Tetro’s girlfriend. show more

  • The result is visually inventive, narratively edgy, and unlike anything else. show more

  • It has style to burn, eye-catching acting by an international cast and a story that harkens back to many literary classic with its themes of a family torn apart, brothers in conflict and a son's rivalry with a towering father figure. show more

    A superb movie that is clearly worth watching. Unfortunately, however, the movie, which is in black-and-white, can be better described as being light-and-dark with an overwhelming amount of "dark". The absence of "light" in nearly all the scenes becomes an affectation from the Director which detracts from the cinematography. The darkness is not a modifier, enhancer, or subtlety but rather a significant part of the movie.

    They could have said it all with a half an hour less. The photography was creative, a little too dark for my taste. confusing at times and after awhile you didn't care. It was just ok....
