Critic Reviews



Based on 20 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Telling an old story in a new way and infusing what might have been a dry political polemic with poetry, passion and unlikely warmth.
An ambitious mix of politics, religion, art, and human drama.
While the concept may sound schematic, it is brought to vivid life by wonderful characterizations.
That irresistible thing - a movie about the making of a movie - combined with a bit of a history and a political message.
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie is brave to raise the questions it does, although at the end I looked in vain for a credit saying, "No extras were underpaid in the making of this film."
Even the Rain strikes a deep and resonant chord.
It's all a bit too schematic, yet the ambition is admirable and the message powerful: Today, no less than yesterday, the weak must be strong to survive, and their strength is endlessly tested.
Europeans have a taste for both the mechanics of trickery and the machinations of power, and the politically astute Spanish film "Even the Rain" belongs in the same conversation with Francois Truffaut's "Day for Night" and Pedro Almodovar's "Bad Education."
New York Daily News
More serious-minded than expected, with a unique and savvy point of view.
Deeply felt convictions and first-rate craftsmanship-craftswomanship, in the case of the Spanish director, Icíar Bollaín-win out over contrivance in this parallel drama of exploitation in the New World discovered by Columbus, and in the Bolivia of 2000.
