Movie Reviews

Los Angeles Times - 10/10 by Kevin Thomas A superlative work, offering a rich emotional experience that at the same time calls attention to the seemingly endless suffering of the Afghan people.
Boston Globe - 10/10 by Jay Carr Simple, but loaded. It celebrates the humanity and humanism at the heart of Iran's remarkable flow of films, but it's also more of a rebuke to materialistic values than any ideologue could ever hope to be.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David Sterritt Expressively filmed story of rivalry, romance, and cultural conflict.
Charlotte Observer - 9/10 by Lawrence Toppman The director lingers over images, watching builders at work or Baran at her chores; the camera often seems to daydream, like Lateef. No grand climax caps the film, but the small incidents have a cumulative effect.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Desson Thomson As in Chaplin's films, humor and tragedy dance a wonderful tango throughout the movie. Baran is heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes apart, sometimes together.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert The latest in a flowering of good films from Iran, and gives voice to the moderates there. It shows people existing and growing in the cracks of their society's inflexible walls.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Michael Wilmington A film that uses beautiful tableaux and convincingly raw actors to build to a climax of shatteringly understated poignancy and power.
The New York Times - 9/10 by Dana Stevens The lovely clarity of this story, which seems to have been drawn from the literature of an earlier age, is well served by the artful subtlety of the telling. Mr. Majidi prefers imagery to exposition, and his shots are as dense with meaning, and as readily accessible, as Dutch paintings.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Ann Hornaday Majidi has discovered a wonderful cast of players to bring this gentle allegory to life, especially Naji as the irascible but generous Memar, who displays nearly perfect comic timing.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 9/10 by Peter Rainer It's an elliptical tragedy in which the fate of its characters takes on a larger significance while never losing its intimacy.
USA Today - 9/10 by Mike Clark Majidi tells his simple story with dazzling vision.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum There are moments in Baran as wholesomely heart-tugging as any involving Charlie Chaplin and a blind girl, but the film is saved from aren't-kids-cute sentimentality by a warmth that isn't faked and a stately sense of composition.
