The very definition of modest, Las Acacias articulates emotional transformation with simplicity and grace. Rarely has a film managed to say so much while saying so little.

Slant Magazine
This lovely film is ultimately an articulation of something at once simple and universal: the discontent of traveling through life with sad resignation.

The Guardian
Exhilarating and moving. This is a very satisfying love story.

Village Voice
Watching this taciturn man grow close to mother and child - close enough that he experiences twinges of jealousy and abandonment toward the end of Las Acacias - is one of the most satisfying spectacles in a movie this year, a time-lapse of emotions rendered perfectly.

A moving drama set against beautiful Latin American backdrops - just don't expect fireworks.

A study in simplicity, perhaps too much so. The writer-director is working in the same patiently observant vein as Argentine confederate Lisandro Alonso (Liverpool), especially in the intriguing early scenes, where the adults communicate mostly through furtive glances and expertly modulated body language.
