Performers, Cast and Crew:
Film Comment - 05/01/2003
"...The face and demeanor of Bardem emerges as the bulwark. His performance -- he seems to making a career of this -- can transcend the oppression of history with an assuredly relaxed slouch..."
USA Today - 07/25/2003
"...A remarkable film....The best thing about this bittersweet story is how simply and delicately its scenes are presented..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/15/2003
"...[The film] pulses with the star power of the extraordinary Javier Bardem..."
Uncut - 06/01/2005
"[S]o deft at spotting moments of hope, humour and defiance among these declining characters that, far from being just a wallow in despair, it's also lean and uplifting."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2005
"[T]he film dishes out gallows humour alongside its mournful recital of despair."
