"The Spanish import JOURNEY TO A MOTHER'S ROOM opens on a two-shot that wordlessly crystallizes the relationship between its characters. The mom of the title, Estrella (Lola Dueñas), is asleep on her sofa next to her slumbering daughter, Leonor (Anna Castillo), a young woman of indeterminate age but who is certainly too old to share a makeshift bed with her mother. They’re even covering themselves up with the same thermal blanket—an object that will assume a weighty symbolism of severed connective tissue as this elegant character study commences."
John Thomason - PALM BEACH ARTS PAPER

"JOURNEY TO A MOTHER'S ROOM may be the debut feature from Spanish director Celia Rico Clavellino, but it is shot with the nuance of an established master."
Chloe Walker - FILM INQUIRY

"Clavellino's approach is unsentimental and all the more believable for that."
Amber Wilkinson - EYE FOR FILM
