Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem lead this Spain-set psychological drama from two-time Oscar-winning auteur Asghar Farhadi (The Salesman).... More

"Laura (Cruz) travels with her teenage daughter and young son to the village where she grew up to attend her sister's wedding. She's left her husband Alejandro (Darín) back in Argentina and is free to plunge into the simple pleasures of her youth. But tensions run just under the surface with Laura's family, and the stray feelings she has for her old boyfriend Paco (Bardem), who now runs a nearby vineyard, might trouble the waters further. Still, everybody gathers to celebrate the wedding at a big village party, when the power cuts out... and Laura's daughter disappears." (Toronto International Film Festival)Hide

The Press Reviews

  • BBC

    Still, with its rich story, its weighty themes, and the beautiful acting of its charismatic stars (and real-life spouses), Cruz and Bardem, it's the classiest soap opera around. Full Review

  • The narrative keeps hobbling from one plot strand to the other without ever really becoming a gripping maelstrom of revelations as things get progressively worse for the characters. Full Review

  • Absorbing enough but lacking in any real sense of revelation...this undeniably gifted storyteller seems firmly stuck on Cruz control. Full Review

  • The performances themselves are so intelligent, mature and yet uninhibited. Farhadi's storytelling has overpowering force. Full Review

  • The film is too laden with its own riches, a festival jewel that glares instead of gleams. Full Review

  • Cruz may have the showier role, but the men - Bardem and Darín both - wind up baring their souls in astonishing ways. Full Review

  • The mystery becomes popcorn-chompingly compelling, each new piece of information adding shading and dimension to the true shape of the family. Nobody is above suspicion or below empathy. Full Review
