Roma (15)

Drama

Mexican drama which follows a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s.


The critical consensus

Pairing thrilling technical prowess with profound artistic vision, Alfonso Cuarón has made a masterpiece, at once understated and otherworldly. We need more filmmakers like him.

*****John Nugent, Empire Online, 26/11/2018

Roma is more impressive as a feat of crowd control than as a piece of visual storytelling or as a character study; it's a film that’s easier to admire than to fall in love with.

**(*)(*)(*)Philip Concannon, The Skinny, 28/11/2018

Alfonso Cuarón’s intimate family drama, set in 1970s Mexico, is a triumphant blend of tragedy, comedy and absurdity.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 29/11/2018

Cuarón’s masterpiece. An artwork that towers above the pretenders.

*****David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 30/11/2018

The Mexican filmmaker makes even the most banal moments seem lyrical in this brilliantly observed drama.

*****Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 30/11/2018

Occasionally the almost showy virtuosity of the film-making can prove a distraction, making a very personal project seem more like a technical tour de force. But it’s a minor quibble, and one that I suspect may seem foolish on the second viewing that such a multilayered work demands.
