Critic Reviews for Nervous Translation

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (11)

  • An intelligent and idiosyncratic film that lands on the skin, then lingers in the mind.

    April 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • As a slice of life, as a direct transcription of a child's-eye view of the world, it is intriguingly and lovingly detailed.

    April 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Tracking a second-grader's eccentric efforts to perceive the chaotic circumstances whirling around her, Shireen Seno has teased a piece of contemplative cinema out of a restless child's play.

    March 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Children perceive the world in a very different fashion that grownups do, and this is one of the main points of the film, as indicated by the surrealist element that briefly appears in the story.

    December 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Shireen Seno's portrait of a remarkably imaginative and self-contained child at a specifically 1980s Filipino moment is full of both charming whimsy and a delicately observed, melancholy universality.

    April 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Nervous Translation continually reminds us of the limits and partiality of its child perspective, even as it presents glimpses of Val's own interiority.
