Critic Reviews for Capernaum (Capharnaüm)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6)

Despite an awkwardly didactic climax, the results are grueling and powerful.

It's a deeply assured piece of direction, and though it only plays a few emotional notes, they are ones that won't soon leave your memory.

May 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The kind of social-issue sadness pile that confuses nonstop hardship for drama, begging for our tears at every moment.

Top Critic

Every emotion is negated by another, until we're left with nothing but the mess we were presented from the start. Capernaum, indeed.

Not subtle, but stirring.

May 17, 2018 | Full Review…

While this is unquestionably an issue film, it tackles its subject with intelligence and heart.
