Nina's Tragedies Reviews

Page 1 of 2
Eric D. Snider

Ayelet Zorer gives Nina grace, sexiness and a real personality. She's someone you'd want to see a movie about, though maybe you'd wish the movie were a little more polished than this one.

Israeli society is one that has ample experience processing grief, and Nina's Tragedies explores that challenge with humanity and humor.

The dry humor is disarming. The ensemble cast is engaging and interesting to watch. And the main plot, as it were (will Nadav and Nina find respective happiness?), is suspenseful.

It's well acted, and well written, but it rarely delivers the emotional resonance you keep expecting.

If, at times, he lays on the surrealist touches with a trowel, it's a small price to pay for the goofy tenderness with which he ministers to his hapless, self-absorbed characters, and bestows on them a hard-won peace.

The boy's adjustments to Nina and her emotional tempests comes with flashes of comedy, the poignancy of lost and reclaimed love, a sprinkle of shame, and some silliness.
