Rating: 2/4 -- Finding Altamira is let down by ordinary acting, way too many scholarly adages and a perplexing level of inaction. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Director Hugh Hudson maintains a steady hand throughout in this low-key but powerful rumination on faith and reason. Full Review
Toronto Star
Sep 22, 2016
In Antonio Banderas, Mr. Hudson has a winning de Sautuola of personal modesty, scientific integrity and paternal warmth. Full Review
New York Times
Sep 15, 2016
A rote but engaging historical drama about the eternal debate between truth and mythology. Full Review
Village Voice
Sep 16, 2016
A reasonably engaging tale of the ever present arguments that take place between science and belief. Full Review
The Gate
Aug 28, 2018
Antonio Banderas' admirable performance fails to energize Hugh Hudson's handsome but ponderous period drama. Full Review
Sep 17, 2016
Despite a few flourishes, plus some solid work from Antonio Banderas as Marcelino de Sautuola -- the amateur scientist who first uncovered the famous cave paintings in northern Spain -- it's pretty much the work of someone going through the motions. Full Review
