«Perpetuum Mobile se contrapone al cine comercial recordándonos que la vida diaria no es tan mágica como en las pantallas hollywoodense; retrata lo cotidiano, sin que falte el humor, con absoluto sentido de la intrascendencia y haciendo hincapié en lo aparentemente banal para que surja significado de la nada».
— Sofía Ochoa Rodríguez: EnFilme

«Muestra una mirada silenciosa a lo cotidiano con ayuda de largos planos secuencia, poniendo de manifiesto la incomunicación entre las familias y otros vínculos sociales. Según sus propias palabras, el director continúa explorando la relación de los mismos personajes de sus filmes anteriores pero en situaciones distintas. Interroga sin concesiones lo habitual, para desarrollar una reflexión sobre el día a día, que consigue traspasar al público y que resulta inquietante».
— Déborah Farjí Núñez: Noticine
