Magical Girl is a razor-sharp tale of unintended consequences. Carlos Vermut's tale of a young girl's simple wish is a skillfully-plotted web of intrigue with a trio of assured, dynamic central performances.
Steve Greene, Indiewire

Spanish director Carlos Vermut's sophomore feature [is] an elaborately contrived, imagination-dependent dark comedy that operates through sleight of hand, misleading auds into following a preteen leukemia patient's dying wish while it assembles another, far more sinister secondary narrative deep in its viewers' collective subconscious.
Peter Debruge, Variety
