Critic Reviews of "Truman"San Diego ReaderApril 21, 2017
Not your typical cancer drama anchored in grief, instead a clear-sighted journey that makes demands on one's emotions in the most unlikely ways.Arizona RepublicApril 20, 2017
There isn't a mawkish moment to be found, though there are plenty of lovely, humane ones, as well as some that are quite funny.Los Angeles TimesApril 14, 2017
It sounds paradoxical but, if done right, films about a life ending can be the most life-affirming films you'll see. "Truman," a great success in its native Spain, is definitely done right.Wall Street JournalApril 13, 2017
Canine power is far from the only thing the film has got going for it. The actor, Julián, is played by the great Ricardo Darín, an Argentine star with a quick wit and a wry, buoyant presence.San Francisco ChronicleApril 13, 2017
There are things in life and art that are simply so beautiful that they must be witnessed, and Darín's performance in "Truman" is one of those.Washington PostApril 13, 2017
"Truman" avoids preachiness as scrupulously as it evades certainty.Austin ChronicleMay 04, 2017
Why it's taken this superb movie two years to cross the ocean is a mystery. See Truman with a good friend. You'll be closer for it.One Guy's OpinionApril 27, 2017
Coming to terms with imminent death is not an easy subject for a film, but Cesc Gay treats it with commendable delicacy, a welcome absence of sentimentality, and not a little humor.El Nuevo Herald (Miami)April 20, 2017
A film that has attributes that elevate it: two magnificent actors and a tragic story with touches of humor. [Full review in Spanish]San Francisco ExaminerApril 14, 2017
Gay's direction and screenplay (cowritten by Tomas Aragay) and splendid performances keep the characters feeling real and spontaneous, resulting in a captivating tale of human (and canine) companionship and caring.SF WeeklyApril 13, 2017
Truman's resolution to its title arc is unexpected and the only way that makes emotional sense.Spirituality and PracticeApril 08, 2017
A pitch-perfect heart-affecting drama about death, friendship, and love.
