Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite some nice performances ... it never gets out of the predictable low gear."
‑ Michael Esposito, Chicago Tribune
"Director-writer Pablo Tapero keeps the proceedings low-key and realistic. He doesn't hit you over the head with his ideas, yet he manages to say a lot about human nature."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Proves that Americans don't hold the patent on familial dysfunction, but it's also a sincere personal essay about writer-director Trapero's Argentinean family."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The cast is as spiritedly naturalistic as Guillermo Nieto's cinematography, but there's no sense of place (let alone insight), and for a road movie that's a fatal flaw."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"Funny, telling and more than a little frightening"
‑ Rich Cline, Film Threat
"The cast doesn't look like a troupe of actors; it could easily be taken for an ordinary family with plenty of physical and psychological bumps and bruises, but always loving."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"Trapero focuses on hazy morning sunrises and landscapes rushing by, and the way he frames the action in that tiny camper is like an extended, bravura stunt."
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"This is all about boredom, anger and sex, and what we get most is the first on the list."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Another low-budget gem from the New Argentine cinema."
‑ Tom Dawson,
"While the film is completely unpretentious and moves at a pleasant pace, it's also lightweight."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"It's a profoundly rich and beautiful picture, in its unassuming way close to a masterpiece."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"The movie rarely if ever crosses the border between familiarity and surprise."
‑ Rob Nelson, Village Voice
"Getting released so close to Little Miss Sunshine can't be a coincidence."
‑ Edward Douglas,
"The film sets up a familiar dichotomy: traditional values, common sense, and a sense of nature, contrasted with urban sophistication, neurosis, and selfishness."
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
