Cinéwomen Cahiers 2015

"We have been really impressed with your film, and we appreciate the way you explore the issue of violence against women capturing unconscious emotional reactions, as well as your refined cinematography and sapient use of close-ups reminding us of Krzysztof Kieślowski's early work, so we'll be pleased to submit you a personal interview about your cinema, which will be published in the next issue of our net review."

"The Heat Wave" in L'essentiel

August 13, 2014

"Un court-métrage réalisé par l'Espagnole Lucia Valverde, qui a grandi au Grand-Duché, et dont l'acteur principal n'est autre que Luc Spada."


"En plus d'utiliser des décors du Grand-Duché comme le Findel, le film parle du melting-pot à la luxembourgeoise, et ce, avec un ton plutôt humoristique."


"On y entend aussi toutes les langues. «Le couple parle anglais, le héros va rencontrer de vieilles dames qui s'expriment en Luxembourgeois, il va aussi tomber sur ses voisins Italiens, d'autres Portugais et parler avec des enfants en français»"

"Papá te quiere mucho"- Critic by Yolanda Aguas in CINET-FÄRO

March 14, 2013

"The director and screenwriter of this magnificent and breathtaking short film decided to shoot it in a sequence shot because she needed to tell the story as "an event that we are witnessing in  real time, where the camera travels through the space revealing the reality and deepest emotions of our main character, without cuts."


"Beware of this young director, actress, screenwriter and producer because she can bring a lot to Spanish Cinema."
