November 17, 2017
A film so phony that its makers needed to coin a nonsense word to give it an appropriate title, the irksome Insyriated is the sort of feeble attempt at profundity that crops up in the face of every armed conflict.
September 11, 2017
Ultimately, this war-torn drama fails to bring out the big guns.

Like a Holocaust script that aims for sentiment and phony realism, the results reduce the tragedy to cheap TV-movie tricks.

As we peek into the day to day existence of a family stuck in an apartment in the middle of war torn Syria, we see how communities come together, fall apart and witness the resilience of the human spirit.

Insyriated is an uncomfortable but must-see film - a drama that feels like a documentary - that gives a worthy insight into the plight of ordinary people in a desperate situation.

In Syria is an x-ray of a tense suffering. A walk with a camera that follows the characters through love and death. [Full Review in Spanish]

August 29, 2017
Great performances and solid cinematography help sell the draining realism of In Syria, but the shift in narrative focus makes this one-location set drama feel too theatrical.

As a viewer one certainly leaves Insyriated with a more visceral understanding of what the Syrian conflict means for millions of families. Whether that is of any help to them, is a separate question.

From one hallway to the next and from room to room, [Philippe Van Leeuw] turns a home and its inhabitants into the center of the most complicated look at human conduct. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 21, 2018
With all the action taking place within the cramped apartment, Van Leeuw does a sterling job of creating nail-biting suspense without any physical action...the film is a reminder of the nightmare that many ordinary Syrians have had to endure every day.
