Critic Reviews of "Finding Altamira"Globe and MailSeptember 23, 2016
Finding Altamira is let down by ordinary acting, way too many scholarly adages and a perplexing level of inaction.Toronto StarSeptember 22, 2016
Director Hugh Hudson maintains a steady hand throughout in this low-key but powerful rumination on faith and reason.VarietySeptember 17, 2016
Antonio Banderas' admirable performance fails to energize Hugh Hudson's handsome but ponderous period drama.Village VoiceSeptember 16, 2016
A rote but engaging historical drama about the eternal debate between truth and mythology.New York TimesSeptember 15, 2016
In Antonio Banderas, Mr. Hudson has a winning de Sautuola of personal modesty, scientific integrity and paternal warmth.Los Angeles TimesSeptember 14, 2016
A well-mounted if largely prosaic period drama ...National PostSeptember 23, 2016
Director Hugh Hudson shoots in lush settings and provides ample footage of the incredible paintings; this could make a nice double feature alongside Werner Herzog's documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams.Cinemalogue.comSeptember 23, 2016
... too often detours into silly subplots that minimize the moral complexity and trivialize the fascinating true-life source material.Georgia StraightSeptember 22, 2016
Despite a few flourishes, plus some solid work from Antonio Banderas as Marcelino de Sautuola -- the amateur scientist who first uncovered the famous cave paintings in northern Spain -- it's pretty much the work of someone going through the motions.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsSeptember 16, 2016
'Finding Altamira' excels at showing the joys and sorrows that can come from a historic discovery. It also paints a beautiful picture of a tender father/daughter relationship.BeliefnetSeptember 15, 2016
Some striking shots cannot make up for static storytelling and a clunky script.Flick FilosopherSeptember 15, 2016
Couched in a tale of scientific discovery is a lovely portrait of a father-daughter relationship grounded in intellect and curiosity, a rare thing onscreen.
