Delightful, Gently Profound, Summery Spanish Snack.
A rich and refreshing meditation on friendship, philosophy, art, and ping-pong that suggests no film needs to run much longer than an hour.
Jessica Kiang, Variety

A characterful ramble powered by four terrific performances and witty dialogue rooted in the truth. It’s a pleasure to spend 64 mins with these four – and ultimately, the filmmakers responsible for introducing us to them.
Anna Smith, Deadline

A minimal but empathetic film, sensitive and agile, intimate and somewhat sad, alive and contradictory.
Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa
