    Late Marriage will assuredly rank as one of the cleverest, most deceptively amusing comedies of the year.
  2. Watch for the director's own mother, Lili Kosashvili, a standout as Zaza's fierce, stately mama.
  3. Powerful and very bitter comedy.
  4. 80
    A daring and immediate debut feature for Koshashvili, Late Marriage could lead two likeminded people to opposite conclusions, and that may be its greatest strength.
  5. 75
    The most important sequence in Late Marriage is a refreshingly frank sex scene involving Zaza and Judith. -- Watching this scene, we realize that most sex scenes in the movies play like auditions.
  6. Whether this smart, sexy and unsparing film is a hilarious comedy or a poignant drama is a matter of personal opinion — and experience. But if you've ever felt both baffled and blessed by your own family, this "Marriage" is one event you won't want to miss.
  7. 50
    Late Marriage's stiffness is unlikely to demonstrate the emotional clout to sweep U.S. viewers off their feet.
