August 23, 2002
A romantic comedy enriched by a sharp eye for manners and mores.
August 16, 2002
A terrific, thoroughly engrossing motion picture.
July 20, 2002
One of those welcome visitors, a movie that turns out to be much more than we expected.
July 10, 2002
A canny (and profoundly sexy) movie.
July 10, 2002
A closely observed, somewhat funny, ultimately very sad movie.
July 2, 2002
Late Marriage's stiffness is unlikely to demonstrate the emotional clout to sweep U.S. viewers off their feet.
June 14, 2002
Ashkenazi and Elkabetz are sensational in the lead roles.
June 14, 2002
Unfolds in a low-key, organic way that encourages you to accept it as life and go with its flow.
June 13, 2002
This may be Dover Kosashvili's feature directing debut, but it looks an awful lot like life -- gritty, awkward and ironic.
June 7, 2002
An unforgettable look at morality, family, and social expectation through the prism of that omnibus tradition called marriage.
June 7, 2002
It feels like a devastatingly honest portrait of how old-world family loyalties are both a haven and a prison -- for two generations.

A seriocomic debut of extravagant promise by Georgian-Israeli director Dover Kosashvili.

Late Marriage is not a one-level film, and one of its most revealing moments shows the strong-minded mother expressing respect for the equally iron-willed Judith.
May 30, 2002
The last scenes of the film are anguished, bitter and truthful. Mr. Koshashvili is a director to watch.
May 26, 2002
Judith and Zaza's extended bedroom sequence ... is so intimate and sensual and funny and psychologically self-revealing that it makes most of what passes for sex in the movies look like cheap hysterics.
May 22, 2002
Will assuredly rank as one of the cleverest, most deceptively amusing comedies of the year.
May 17, 2002
There's none of the happily-ever -after spangle of Monsoon Wedding in Late Marriage -- and that's part of what makes Dover Kosashvili's outstanding feature debut so potent.
May 17, 2002
The frankness of Kosashvili's film may be a bit breathtaking, but because it is, you believe every moment.
May 17, 2002
Features one of the most affecting depictions of a love affair ever committed to film.
May 14, 2002
Superbly brash, raunchy, and confrontational.
