An audience-friendly affair which deals with harrowing subject-matter in restrained, tactful and aesthetically entrancing style...
Gently dipping us into the long ago and far away past, Ash Mayfair's directorial debut brings an intimate immediacy to the re-creation of rural Vietnam in the late 19th century.
It's true that [The Third Wife] shows a tendency towards excessive preciosity, but by not losing contact with its characters or its tribulations it rises above it. [Full review in Spanish]
In her directorial debut, Ashleigh Mayfair creates a film full of rotundity, delicacy, beauty and cruelty. [Full Review in Spanish]
Through the eyes of May, the viewer sees the young woman's confrontation with the real world, an accelerated transition where sexuality, marriage and motherhood are in the same vital phase. [Full review in Spanish]
Mayfair reveals [the consequences of injustice in their] tense brutality despite never relinquishing her handle on the aesthetic beauty housing those horrors.
It is commendable that Mayfair deftly enables May and her sister-wives to explore their own agencies and sexualities without ever using their suffering as window dressing to illustrate the film's gritty authenticity.
The almost entirely female cast is captivating throughout.
