  • [Crystal Swan] is so effective at capturing the hopefulness of someone who's seized by the promise of a better life, and the desperation she feels when that promise starts to slip through her fingers.

  • While some nuances may go over the heads of international audiences, its core social and economic frustrations are universal ones, driven by Velya's fundamentally sympathetic wanderlust.

  • Crystal Swan is a largely conventional fish-out-of-water story at heart. But it is elevated above the routine by its excellent cast, especially Nassibulina, and plenty of visual flair.

  • What happens ... is a perfect metaphor for what was happening in all such places and countries at that time, much of which has led to the world we live in today.

  • Throughout the film, it's as if mundane objects hold the remedies for the wretchedness of everyday life.

    May 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Crystal Swan feels like a poison-tipped letter from the filmmaker to her home country that is also an engrossing work of social criticism.
