Movie Reviews

  • Zain Al Rafeea is a revelation as the energetic, foul-mouthed Zain, beautifully delivering a spontaneous energy that feels as though its plucked right off the streets moments before the cameras roll
    Review rate : B+ by Jordan Ruimy [The Playlist ]
  • Nadine Labaki proving herself an astonishingly accomplished director of non-professional performers as well as a measured storyteller.. While this is unquestionably an issue film, it tackles its subject with intelligence and heart
    by Jay Weissberg [Variety ]
  • it's a much angrier, tougher -- and sometimes funnier -- film than you might imagine; Capernaum s a simplistic film in some ways, with a naive ending -- but there is energy and vigour, too
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • it's a deeply assured piece of direction, and though it only plays a few emotional notes, they are ones that won't soon leave your memory
    by Emily Yoshida [Vulture ]
  • emotionally persuasive; Nadine Labaki's made up a grab bag of ideas and plot elements that work surprisingly effectively as a melodrama with a message
    by Leslie Felperin [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Capernaum is a movie that wants its audience to empathize with its protagonist so intensely that you agree he should never have been born. It's a fascinating approach, but one that's frustrated by the literalness with which Labaki unpacks it
    Review rate : C by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
