Roma is a perfectly made film, in my eyes. And it’s difficult to explain how it affects the viewer, as the experience is different for everyone. But it’s clear that Alfonso Cuaron out his heart and soul into this movie that is based on the nanny from his childhood. Newcomer Yalitza Aparicio is a revelation, and a natural.

Grade: A+
