Critic Reviews for Crystal Swan

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

[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.

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.

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.

Alina Nasibullina is charismatic as Velya.

If something stands out above all it's the excellent performance of Alina Nasibullina, an actress with a lot of presence that dominates the screen at all times. [Full review in Spanish]

The style is effervescent and the dialogue has a screwball zip, but the mood itself is rather melancholy.
