“Una obra sobria , elegante y luminosa que Marcelo Panozzo comparó con precisión con algunos pasajes de Shara, la obra maestra de la japonesa Naomi Kawase”.
— Diego Batlle: Otros Cines

“Si algo fascina especialmente en Copacabana son las escenas de baile filmadas de manera rigurosa (…) el filme se adentra tanto en el lenguaje de los cuerpos, los bailes y las festividades, como en pequeñas historias de la inmigración, casi como yendo del final al principio de la historia”.
— Diego Lerer: Micropsia Cine
