Movie Reviews

“The explosion of freedom without rules or genres or flags that wants to be and is (…) There are films that don’t fit on the screen. Rainbow’ is one of them. And what’s more, you don’t see it, you dance to it”.

Luis Martínez: Diario El Mundo

“Paco León has come to play, to dismantle myths, to break taboos, to mix languages and codes in a multidisciplinary way (…) Within the Spanish cinema, ‘Rainbow’ is a real rara avis, a martian and disconcerting film”.”Paco León has come to play, to dismantle myths, to break taboos, to mix languages and codes in a multidisciplinary way (…) Within the Spanish cinema, ‘Rainbow’ is a real rara avis, a martian and disconcerting film”.

Beatriz Martínez: Diario El Periódico 

“Paco León crashes on his way to the rainbow (…) an arrhythmic musical fantasy that lacks the sharp and tender look of his previous works”.

Oskar Belategui: Diario El Correo

“A very personal and risky version of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ (…) a free, kitsch and Instagram adaptation (…) The result is as crazy as it is risky”.

Pepa Blanes: Cadena SER

A relatively well accomplished movie that is amusing in its narrative, full of colorful characters and technically, somewhat good. As far as the soundtrack is concerned, it is not bad.
