Movie Reviews

  • some of the intellectual arguments presented here recall the likes of Ruben Ostland's The Square but Ben Handia injects considerable warmth through her love story and intriguing characters, while her plotting remains unexpected and complex to the last
    4.5 of 5 by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film (UK) ]
  • overly schematic in places, but fascinating; it is nonetheless a very intriguing work that again suggests Ben Hania is a talent to watch; a beautifully staged and intriguing if necessarily flawed "mise-en-abyme" of its own complex themes and obsessions
    by Boyd van Hoeij [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • on the whole, this is a stimulating work that highlights important issues and once again confirms Ben Hania as a rising talent
    by Alissa Simpson [Variety ]
  • art, commerce, and immigration are inextricably bound in this playful and gently moving film
    2.5 of 4 by Derek Smith [Slant Magazine ]
  • a prickly cautionary tale of exploitation and commodification; the story evidently struck a chord; The lustrously shot movie breaks Sam out of the gallery grind through Hollywood-grade somersaults in storytelling
    by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times ]
  • a madly dramatic and engrossing melodrama about a political refugee whose unique predicament bundles with it issues pertaining to personal and political identity,...romantic rejection and the outer limits of art world presumption and extravagance
    by Todd McCarthy [Deadline ]
  • a funny, touching and pointed film. Made by the Tunisian writer-director Kaouther Ben Hania, it weaves together satire and humane political awareness to create an original fable about art, privilege, freedom and identity
