  1. Everything about this subtly directed drama enhances its pathos and humor, especially an astonishing performance by Gorintin, a 90-something woman only a few years into her acting career.

    If Otar is, finally, a mite thin and predictably structured, that takes little away from the filmmaker and her cast, who work hard at fashioning the most outlandish special effect of all: believable human life.
  3. Before and after plot mechanics, a drama of family tension and warmth.
  4. This sensitive drama will appeal to anyone who has strained against the confines of family - or basked happily in its comforts.
  5. 70
    A trio of finely observant performances graces this quiet drama.

    One of the most intimate and moving films I've seen. Beautifully fimed, fabulously real acting and I'm not ashamed to say it made me bawl.

    A superb film above love and family. Esther Gorintin is a wonder as are the other 2 female leads. A do not miss film.

    Pehaps my expectations were too high but for the most part I wasn't as moved by this film as perhaps I should have been. Someone, Pehaps my expectations were too high but for the most part I wasn't as moved by this film as perhaps I should have been. Someone, somewhere else said everything happened on the screen, over there, that they weren't personally moved..same for me. A good film, but alas, just because it's better than so much out there does not make it a ten. Expand
