Amazing first feature film by Kike Maillo
I watched this film today at the movie theater. The film is beautifully
acted and directed. I am very glad to see that in Spain we have new
filmmakers able to work within the film industry and still make a great
film in the cinematographic sense.
"Eva" is far more profound than the trailer or the publicity may
suggest. It is a deep reflection on human nature and identity. But, and
here comes the surprise, it is not a so-called intellectual film.
The film is very well done, and it is an example of a new wave of
European cinema that is producing great films without necessarily big
fireworks. Keep doing the good job, Kike.
