Nina's Tragedies Reviews

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Gavison's whimsical and melancholy tragicomedy keeps the Israeli-Arab conflict in the background.

The comedy is feather-light and the emotions are drawn on situation, rather than on genuine involvement with substantively developed characters.

A film that takes in the topsy-turvy world of contemporary Tel Aviv through an adolescent's distracted glances.

The chief problem with this exasperating and shamelessly contrived award-winning Israeli movie: It doesn't know when to stop telling and start showing.

You want to get caught up in Nadav's world and ride his emotional roller coaster, but the movie keeps you at a distance (like watching through a window).

Passing eccentricities of character, but serious trouble staging honest and coherent emotional scenes....a surplus of preciousness and a deficit of truth-ringing reality.

A film about the whole panoply of life and love and death, blah blah blah.

Director/writer Savi Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.

Casts an ambitious net that ultimately falls out of the control of writer-director Savi Gabizon.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

No amount of style or good acting can disguise the fact that this downbeat Israeli comedy is little more than a sudsy soap-opera with a distinctly unsavory aftertaste.

A dark, morose, confusing hodgepodge of uninteresting and unbelievable characters.

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 path to the grave is often a bumpy fusion of the serene and the shrill.

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.

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.

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

Nina's Tragedies is full of gentle, labyrinthian turns, sly and sweet.

A sad little comedy with enough surprises to keep the viewer guessing, and fine performances by all.
