Sundance. Acidente (Accident)."Pondering the everyday and discovering the sublime, Cao Guimaraes's and Pablo Lobato's gentle tone poem of a film, Accident turns the idea of armchair travel upside down," writes Robert Koehler in Variety. "Cinema's power to observe and transform is beautifully achieved." A second opinion: "My award for the most frustrating exercise in the festival goes to... Acidente," writes Michael Lerman at indieWIRE. "A mishmash of shaky digital video and cheap, twangy sound turns what could have been a beautiful, visceral exercise a la the work of landscape filmmaker Peter Hutton instead feels like a screening of somebody's homemade vacation footage." Coverage of the coverage: The Park City Index.
