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.

A gently quirky, touching comedy from Israel about a young boy's infatuation with his aunt.

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

Engagingly odd and full of sad, funny moments.

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

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

Writer-director Savi Gabizon brings a startling freshness to the coming-of-age tale.

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.

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.

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

With improbable charm, Gabizon knits it all together, his characters' sexual obsessions and earthiness tempered by a soulful melancholy.
