Warmhearted and defiantly unsentimental, "Grandma, a Thousand Times" gains lightness from Teta's tart observations ... and the director's stylistic sprightliness.

It's at least enough to inspire a phone call to your own grandparents.

Teta, Alf Marra is a loving portrait of Teta's aging process, at once funny and reverent, amiable and acute.

PopMatters

Charming, short tribute to Lebanese filmmaker's beloved Beirut grandmother, her memories and deep-rooted values is more home movie than big-screen-worthy, but will warm up any screen.
