Performers, Cast and Crew:
Entertainment Weekly - 07/23/2004
"[E]xtraordinary....[The film] unfolds with a simplicity that's as breathtaking as its inevitability is harrowing."
Rolling Stone - 08/05/2004
"Remember the name Catalina Sandino Moreno. The heartfelt and harrowing performance she gives here should put her in line for a heap of year-end awards."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 07/01/2004
"The movie is every bit as gripping and suspenseful as many far more expensive Hollywood thrillers."
Los Angeles Times - 07/15/2004
"Sandino Moreno may be in only her early 20s, but she is able to draw upon her considerable talent and training to create a portrayal that comes from deep within. She has a radiant screen presence..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/03/2004
"A human drama of great power..."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2005
"[A] well-crafted, finely acted tale....Moreno's exceptional performance maintains the mix of belligerence and naivete that makes Maria such a contradictory and compelling protagonist."
Uncut - 04/01/2005
"[Moreno] bolts the movie down with an earthy, spontaneous performance."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
Ranked #24 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "[I]ts multi-stranded, all-encompassing narrative evokes memories of Steven Soderbergh's TRAFFIC."
Wall Street Journal - 05/19/2010
"Mr. Marston is a natural dramatist, and, better still, an adventurous one."
