Critic Reviews for Forgiveness

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (7)

  • The result is a hodgepodge of plots and styles, a fault compounded by stiff acting and, except for a few scenes, wooden direction.

    September 12, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The message may be clear -- suppress the past at your peril -- but the execution is a mess.

    September 12, 2008 | Rating: 2/5
  • Forgiveness feels like a high-concept stage play, the kind of well-meant but pretentious project where grand themes are worked out in a claustrophobic setting among a small cast.

  • David's trauma, madness, and recovery is arranged as a puzzle of dreams, flashbacks, hallucinations, and strikingly choreographed numbers that, while occasionally dazzling, remains in pieces at film's end.

  • While the subject of this Israeli feature is riveting and the intention honorable, the narrative strategy and technical execution leave much to be desired.

    July 3, 2011 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Builds on real macabre coincidences to pile on symbolism higher and higher in time-tripping phantasmagoria of flashbacks, nightmares,fantasy and occasional credibility.
