About “La Cámara Lúcida” has been said and could also be said about “Sacramento”:

Iconoclast proposal in these times, “La Cámara Lúcida” is a singular experimental film, curious and disturbing at the same time. (Lluis Bonet. La Vanguardia)

Transgressive, radical and unclassifiable, “La Cámara Lúcida” deconstructs the creative process of making a film. (Matías Néspolo. El Mundo)

Cañeque rehearses a deadly Pirouette and enters the screen with protagonistic eagerness and surrealistic will to give shape to this story which characters painted by Dalí but whispered by Buñuel. An inusual, juicy, jocular and exclusive film. (Oti Rodríguez Marchante. ABC)

Visually gorgeous, “La Cámara Lucida” is an inusual metafictional proposal about the creative process and the extreme and delusional narcissism. (Román Gubern, writer and Emeritus Professor in Film History)
