  1. This wry comedy drama has excellent acting and surprises galore.
  2. 80
    With masterful tonal balance and control, and a visual sophistication as yet unusual among Israeli directors, Gabizon catches both the absurdity and the sadness of what it means to live with such daily threat and confusion.
  3. Israeli director Savi Gabizon has created a nuanced coming-of-age portrait that ought to strike a chord with ­audiences ­everywhere.
  4. 67
    Israeli society is one that has ample experience processing grief, and Nina's Tragedies explores that challenge with humanity and humor.
  5. 60
    With improbable charm, Gabizon knits it all together, his characters' sexual obsessions and earthiness tempered by a soulful melancholy.
  6. Reviewed by: Scott Foundas

    An amiable, but cluttered dramedy.
  7. 38
    Gabizon never establishes a consistent tone or point of view. Instead, we hop from one episode to the next, with no momentum and no reason to care about these people.
