Critic Reviews for I, Olga Hepnarová

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (8)

  • In a role that would be destroyed by even a whiff of melodrama, I, Olga Hepnarová offers one of the year's strongest performances by a woman on-screen. A film as timely as it is tragic and terrifying.

    August 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Compositions often emphasize a dehumanizing effect: when Olga is executed, we first see a crowd of observers who step aside one by one until they reveal her dead body hanging there, in the most matter-of-fact way.

    March 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • We're left feeling that Olga herself might find the film expertly mounted but still missing a more visceral, pissed-off tone.

    March 24, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [Olszanska's] glassy-eyed, understated rendition of a woman who's lost all touch with reality jars us from our senses, despite - or perhaps because of - the filmmakers' clear fascination with their protagonist's sex appeal.

    March 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Anchored by a startling performance by Michalina Olszanska, the Czech film "I, Olga Hepnarova" is an austere, hypnotic story of sadness, madness and murder.

    March 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • I, Olga Hepnarov is a stoic and sobering character study of a lonely young lesbian murderess shunned by those around her.
