  • Summary: Writer/director Savi Gabizon's serio-comic look at an Israeli teenager's coming-of-age and his attraction to his beautiful but emotionally fragile Aunt Nina. (Wellspring Media)

  1. Positive: 10 out of 19
  2. Negative: 1 out of 19
  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. Reviewed by: Staff (Not credited)

    This raw truth, this emotional nakedness, is deeply refreshing.
  6. 50
    Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.
  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.
