“The wonderful and revealing, Cuarón’s opus is familiar even to those who were born in the other side of the border.”
— Claudia Puig: Remezcla
“The sumptuous film, based on Cuarón’s own childhood, reverberates not only with innocence but with the awful intuition of its collapse.”
— Anthony Lane: The NewYorker
“Roma’ assembles its narrative out of small moments, as the director’s camera pans slowly through various scenes to soak in the distinctive locale, while dispensing tidbits of story details from unlikely places.”
