Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A bitter man is healed by his ex-wife after she commits suicide in this low-key Mexican drama. Finding his former spouse dead of an overdose, Jose (Lujn) spends the next five days overseeing her burial, which is complicated by Judaism's condemnation of those who've taken their lives. Amid religious strife, Nora orchestrates familial unity from beyond the grave. Mariana Chenillo's film, however, generally avoids similar manipulation; it's a surprisingly understated movie that poignantly posits death as a therapeutic force for the living.
