  1. It is best to let this stunning film simply wash over you and trust that all will become clear enough in time. Vengo in a sense is a concert film tied together with the slenderest of plots.
  2. 80
    Elegant flamenco tragedy.
  3. Feels like a song you may have heard before, but one whose aching beauty makes it endlessly listenable.
  4. On its own, the story is tepid, and less than original. What draws us in is the way in which Gatlif sets it against a rich Andalusian backdrop.
  5. Reviewed by: Patrick Z. McGavin

    Filled with dazzling moments, Vengo never quite reaches the heights those moments promise.
  6. There may be no more unusual movie around than Vengo.
  7. Neither convincing nor remotely dramatic.
