Critic Reviews for Cherkess

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Nart and Hind's love story has the inevitability of a fairy tale and about as much specificity: the handsome horseman must have his beautiful princess. Full stop.

November 3, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Ah, the plodding period costume drama!

November 1, 2011 | Full Review…

A sweeping and captivating film that offers both style and substance.

November 15, 2011 | Rating: 7.88/10 | Full Review…

Well-intentioned but clumsily wrought, draggy historical tale of a same-religion culture clash.

November 3, 2011 | Full Review…

No moment in the film seems to directly connect to another; they stand apart as isolated little atoms of numbing inanity.
