Critic Reviews for Abel
After its edgy, deliberately puzzling first hour, it starts to run out of steam, but at 85 minutes it doesn't overstay its welcome.
Abel may mark the beginning of a major new Latin American voice.
A comedy that is creepy and amusing in just the right measures.
Audience Reviews for Abel
The drama lies in everyday situations for adults, but dangerous ones for children. The comedy presents itself in the hilarity of kids acting as grownups. John Malkovich-produced Mexican dramedy is sort of reminiscent of 'Lars and the Real Girl' in the way those who surround a character with severe mental issues act and react. Strong performances from first-time actor Christopher Ruiz-Esparza, Karina Gidi and Diego Luna's friend and frequent collaborator, 'Chema' Yázpik. Unfortunately, in the end, the film doesn't wrap up neatly, it just finishes.
