“Unmissable!”  Kat Brown, Empire Magazine

 

“A Tour De Force” Phillip French, The Guardian

 

“Written and directed by Argentine Estaban Saphir, La Antena is the story of a small boy and his family living in a fictional city, a dystopia ruled by Mr TV, that has lost its voice. It is a film that tips its hat to the silent era, German Expressionist and early Soviet cinema, the work of George Melies and particularly Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Saphir playfully explores the conventions of silent film but totally succeeds in delivering his own unique vision; rich in imagination, visually stunning and thoroughly ingenious! La Antena is a lovingly crafted, whimsical and insightful cinematic fable; dramatic and comic, sensory and cerebral, exquisitely beautiful in its use of black and white. Don’t miss it!
