O que se diz lá fora sobre TO THE WONDER, de Terrence Malick:
«There will be many who find TO THE WONDER elusive and too effervescent. They'll be dissatisfied by a film that would rather evoke than supply. I understand that, and I think Terrence Malick does, too. But here he has attempted to reach more deeply than that: to reach beneath the surface, and find the soul in need.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«Never before has Malick explored sexuality so openly onscreen, and while the nudity is fairly discreet, the eroticism of flesh cradling flesh, even the gesture of a hand touching a shoulder, turns out to be a natural subject for Lubezki’s exquisitely graceful camerawork.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«The fine intentions of TO THE WONDER pave a road to puzzlement, not awe.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«A film that seems drained of life and ideas rather than sustained by them.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«Through the character of a saddened priest, Malick seems to be saying that the reason for our breakups, for our fragmented lives and relationships, is that we can no longer see God. If we could, we would be whole again. That may be true, but in TO THE WONDER, it's Terrence Malick who isn't letting his characters be whole.»
