Critic Reviews for Habibi

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (5)

  • This American-Palestinian coproduction paints a vivid picture of daily life in the occupied territories, though it's fairly heavy-handed as drama.

    April 25, 2013 | Full Review…
  • [It] has a gritty, low-budget realism as it depicts day-to-day life under the threat of violence and age-old cultural and generational obstacles.

    March 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A low-budget romancer with more heart than style.

    December 5, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Despite moments of dour power and a likable female lead, the couple's predicament is all too often flatly staged and acted out.

    November 16, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Habibi, from American-born Susan Youssef, also has a knowing and substantial, yet poetic, quality.

    February 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Based on a 9th-century poem about similar lovers at the mercy of historical turmoil, Youssef's debut film captures the ecstasy and desperation of frustrated passion as it presents a desolate portrait of Palestine today.
