Critic Reviews for My Sweet Pepper Land

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

  • One of the notable achievements Saleem's quietly surprising film is a combination of off-beat comedy and a strong sense of menace and danger.

    May 21, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Admittedly, the denouement is slightly off the pace and it all fades to an anticlimax, but wide blue skies, craggy bluffs and sure-footed mountain ponies are all put to good use.

    May 19, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's outcome may be predictable, and its framework decidedly retro, but the themes are anything but, including a healthy dose of feminism.

    Mar 31, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An interesting blend of classic cinema tropes set in the extremely specific (and rarely discussed) liberated Kurdistan.

    May 30, 2013 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…
  • An amusing, touching and subtly transportive film set in a place you'll probably never get to visit.

    Aug 28, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A solid foreign twist on gunslingers and damsels in distress
