Flo Lieb’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's based on real events but maybe it wasn't that smart to simply cut your hair and call yourself 'Mario' and expect that the people in your village wouldn't recognize you.
Why not simply move?
Why keep up the charade in Portugal when the Galicians are searching for your old (fake) identity?
Why did they let Elisa go in the first place once they discovered she was not a man? Simpler times I guess.
