OUT 26 OC­TO­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Tim Cole­man

As per the ti­tle, Chico Pereira’s doc shares beats with Cer­vantes’ clas­sic novel: an old man (Pereira’s un­cle Manuel) jour­ney­ing across Spain with his don­key on a tragi-comic quest. Manuel feels from a dif­fer­ent age: a racon­teur who sleeps out­side and ap­par­ently prefers the com­pany of an­i­mals (whom he hopes to take State­side) to his fam­ily. But de­spite ex­quis­ite cam­er­a­work, the lan­guid pac­ing ul­ti­mately ex­hausts.
