On Ruined Heart (Another Love Story Between a Criminal and a Whore)

“Speaking of Acevedo, she is slowly becoming one of the most entertaining young actresses to watch. Almost like a Spanish Charlotte Gainsbourg, Acevedo is not only one of Mexico’s greatest thespians working today (she’s best known for her turn in Post Tenebras Lux) but she will hopefully become a name American audiences will learn soon. She’s fantastic here in a voiceless performance, but one that is without a doubt resonant and featuring boundless energy, one viewers won’t soon forget. Asano is great as well, but it’s truly Acevedo’s show, and the film gives this character so much room for real vitality, despite not giving her a single word to say”.
