The New York Review of Books
Rating: 5/5 -- The time is our best card and our worst at the same time. Time is like the embrace of the serpent: it is warm but, at the same time, is really suffocating. Enjoy the marvellous hug. [Full review in Spansih] Full Review
EMBRACE digs so deep into the void that it eventually burrows out the other side, reclaiming the wilderness as a reservoir of lost memories.
Rating: 3/5 -- Shot in luminous black-and-white in the Colombian Amazon, Embrace of the Serpent looks like a series of animated photographs torn from the colonial explorers' journals that inspired it. Full Review
Sydney Morning Herald
Rating: 5/5 -- A film that shoots for the moon and lands with ease, grace and nuance; a landing so perfect it infuses the viewer with a love of cinema and its possibilities. Full Review
One Room With A View
Rating: 4/5 -- While Guerra clearly owes a debt to Herzog and Coppola, he blazes his own trail. I can't wait to take this trip again. Full Review
London Evening Standard
3 stars out of 4 -- It is intelligent and sensitive and assembled with a great care, and worth watching just for its images of the jungle...
