Critic Reviews for Ava

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

The ending is left deliberately, unsatisfyingly ambiguous, but whatever her fate may be, in or out of the system, it doesn't matter that much to the viewer.

Right up to the slightly unsatisfying ending, "Ava" is both a complex character portrait and a heartsore farewell to the ephemeral images that will be among the last she sees.

It's hazy, it's hypnotic, it's unruly, it's unpredictable and yet it's grounded in reality and it has fantastic performances from Noee Abita and Laure Calamy. If you like coming-of-age stories with an experimental approach, Ava is your best bet.

Noée Abita is electrifying as Ava.

Ava is an original coming-of-age story that takes off in unexpected directions and finds a resolution in a way that is both breathtakingly out of time and yet also too fragile to last - a memorable film.

A welcome character study about a rebellious teenage girl in Iran.
