All Critics (27) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (4)

  • Plot is not the takeaway from Mimosas, which reminded me of Abbas Kiarostami's Taste of Cherry, another slow-winding ramble through the mountains.

    August 27, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Certain scenes look as if they have been improvised on location and there is something exasperatingly non-committal and provisional about it. But it certainly looks wonderful.

    August 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Mimosas is a languid, lightly experimental affair whose central conceit remains rooted in myth and folklore.

    August 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It confounds its surface narrative with hints of layered meanings to come through a jockeying of story threads.

    April 17, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A movie that panders not at all to Western sensibilities, giving few pointers on a theme beyond the fortifying power of faith. For some viewers, that will be plenty.

  • Laxe latches onto the innate "stranger in a strange land" quality of his star.

  • Like the mountains the caravan travels through, Mimosas is lofty, grand, and tremendously inaccessible; the film deserves credit for how resolutely it commits to being a challenging watch.

  • The Moroccan landscapes are sure to impress, particularly on the big screen.
