Our Comments on the film:
Anagnorisis is a wonderful film that touches deep recesses. Script, very well written, is effective in bringing out the emotional upheavals of all the main characters. The portraits are well done, especially their use in the last frame. Beautiful cinematography combined with background music ties it all up so well. Julio Lazaro and Carlos Pinedo have added great value to the movie.
