Critic score distribution:

  2. Negative: 10 out of 16
  1. Self-indulgent in the extreme, Julián Hernández's laconic ode to heartbreak feels like the work of a lovelorn teenager.
  2. 38
    A murky and morbid dirge of a gay romance.
  3. Reviewed by: Jorge Morales
    All the stylistic flourishes can't hide the lack of an actual plot, character development, or point. Like Gerardo, we wait, hoping something will happen, knowing nothing will.
  4. A bleak, static mood piece about adolescent emptiness. There's little dialogue, and what there is offers the scantest information about Gerardo, who, as played by Mr. Ortuño, conveys an impenetrable blank-faced melancholy.
  5. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    Handsome but dramatically static drama.
  6. It's as pretentious and wispy as its title.
  7. 30
    It's a victory of tone over storytelling, though perhaps a Pyrrhic one.
  8. Reviewed by: Allison Benedikt
    By embracing a static plot, making Gerardo a depressed Robotron and Mexico City a ghost town, Hernandez only succeeds in alienating us, even while focusing on the most universal of themes: Breaking up is hard to do.
  9. Reviewed by: G. Allen Johnson
    Hernandez's debut feature is a thuddingly slow, often wordless portrait of emotional pain.
  10. Reviewed by: Melissa Levine
    Alas, the film has good intentions, but it's a failure. Just try to stay awake.
