Critic Reviews for Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil)

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

The political setting is vague and the results erratic, alternating between intense suspense and high bathos.

September 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Representational merits alone can't distinguish this movie's clumsy farrago of good intentions, ham-fisted story choices and cloddishly on-the-nose dialogue.

May 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Barreling forward with fits of strong drama and underwritten characters, Girls of the Sun features just enough good scenes to make one wish they held together as a whole.

Top Critic

Their courageous, inspiring inspiration deserved a better movie, one with more nuanced plotting and a less overbearing score. Failing that, couldn't Girls Of The Sun have let the pots righteously boil?

Top Critic

Interested parties are better off checking out some of the documentaries, such as "Gulîstan, Land of Roses," rather than this well-intentioned yet cliché-riddled lunge at the tear ducts.

May 13, 2018 | Full Review…

At once mildly harrowing and completely over-the-top, intermittently intense yet so unsubtle it winds up doing damage to its own worthy discourse.
