What distinguishes Castillo's film is the facility and accuracy with which she understands, remembers and recreates the fish-bowl vistas and claustrophobic intimacy of a long car-bound journey.

[It] feels as long as its name, with long, mostly silent stretches devoted to staring out the window at the stark, scrubby scenery.

Sotomayor's movie is more than the sum of its carefully accumulated details.

The naturalistic acting is uniformly good, but Ahumada is most memorable. Fresh-faced, wise, and sensitive, she is the antithesis of the manufactured precocious adolescent in Hollywood films.

Sotomayor's vivid compositions establish environments and spaces tellingly, hinting at the family's history and current state through minor details and gestures, suggesting the bigger picture without ever explaining it.

While the dramatic content is taxingly minimal, the cinematography by Bárbara Álvarez (The Headless Woman) is full of emotional clues.
