This film gave me a familiar feeling. I feel what he felt being a child, being ignorant of the struggles that the grown ups have, what their fears are.. we are so naive when we are kids, and then we become adults too and we start to think about our loved ones and what we saw growing up, we began to be consious and finally understand the deeps of our past days, this film hit home.

Absolutely dripping with stunning photography, like a Fellini film recreated in Mexico, Roma is hard to fault. So many scenes are like a visual symphony with depth of flavour requiring return visits.

Roma's story is tightly tied to its hero, but loosely woven with many holes the audience has to peer through to parse.

With all this, it's hard to fault Roma but it's also hard to say that I love it. It is interesting, it is a wonderful art object, but it is not much of a story. It's slow, it's unfocused in some ways, and much is left for the viewer to think about. Problem is, that most people won't think about it. Most will just call it slow and boring.

Nonetheless, it's hard to fault.
