Critic Reviews:

...The Elderly breaks taboos related to old age in cinema and provokes reflections on the treatment of elders in our society with the help of flawless cinematography, a well-crafted script and a choice of outstanding actors. You will come out shaken.

A lot of horror films have trouble making the jump from one family's problems to something much bigger, and this one mostly connects on that big swing.

It doesn’t help that there’s a lack of cohesion among the characters. Mario, Naia, and Lena represent three different attitudes toward older people, from infantilism and guilt to repulsion. It’s clear that this slow burn is examining the treatment of senior citizens, but it’s unfocused.
