Variety Review: ‘Sunday’s Illness’


With breathtaking elegance and stunning assurance, Ramón Salazar takes a melodramatic chestnut and makes it flower with unexpected emotion in “Sunday’s Illness,” one of the genuine discoveries of the 2018 Berlin Film Festival. Though hardly an unknown quantity (“20 Centimeters”), and notwithstanding a bid for more serious attention with 2013’s barely seen “10.000 noches en ninguna parte,” the director has been pigeon-holed as an Almodóvar acolyte.

The story is too old to be commented.
