WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

70

Screen Daily by Allan Hunter

Precisely observed but somewhat aloof in tone, The Girl And The Spider builds into a symphony of separation and solitude.
50

Slant Magazine by Carson Lund

Zürcher spins byzantine webs of audiovisual stimuli from an ultimately modest dramatic core, and not only is the larger narrative design unclear before it’s finally revealed, it’s easy to get stuck dwelling on the minutia along the way.
91

The Film Stage by Christopher Schobert

The Girl and the Spider’s lovely concluding shot visualizes this fading relationship, and stands as the filmmakers’ final statement on the fleeting nature of love in all its forms. It is both bitter and sweet. So is this beautiful film.
80

Variety by Peter Debruge

Few directors could get away with giving audiences so little context or plot, but the Zürchers succeed in piquing our curiosity, which is all one really needs to sustain a film.
83

IndieWire by Ryan Lattanzio

This is an odd film of poetic abstractions and ellipses, but consistently fascinating in its unrepentant coyness.
