ReviewSource Variety
Review Debutante helmer Daniel Sanchez Arevalo more than delivers on the promise he showed with his series of well-received shorts with "Darkbluealmostblack," an assured and captivating drama that combines grit and grace into a distinctive, character-based whole. Featuring a range of attractive characters aiming at self-reinvention, tragicomic item is not content to be straight-up social realism, and essays some tricky maneuvers before coming through with flying colors...None of the cast are top-flighters in Spain. As the protag, Quim Gutierrez plays Jorge as softspoken and controlled, but there is a tension simmering in him that blows up over the last half hour...Visuals are sometimes authentically witty. Lensing is crisp, often using low lighting to emphasize the claustrophobia of the character's lives, per the title. Eye-catching, fluid editing makes a key contribution to the pic's idiosyncratic style...Pascal Gaigne's score, though effective, is sometimes an aural photocopy of Michael Nyman. The intriguing title refers, symbolism apart, to the color of a suit that Jorge keeps seeing in a shop window and which symbolizes his business future.
