  • "Fig Tree" is a fine drama whose seemingly casual progress only heightens its ultimate impact.

  • Though Asmamawe and the rest of the cast are quite wonderful, especially in the sense of familial camaraderie, the film is dutiful and depressing, the endpoint always evident and inescapable.

  • Masterful cinematography by Daniel Miller and a sterling cast help recreate Davidian's childhood memories. So with an unforgettable finale and all that has come before, one can only pray that Fig Tree gains the international attention it richly deserves.

  • Gritty drama taking place during the civil war in Ethiopia that led Jews of that country to emigrate to Israel.

    May 27, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Fig Tree is beautiful, romantic and cinematic, as well as historically interesting, and Davidian has made an impressive feature-film debut.

    March 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Beautifully shot, with two outstanding sequences - one haunting involving a suicidal old man, and one slyly funny in which the family rehearses going through customs - Fig Tree is a fine debut.
