March 1, 2007
A dark, morose, confusing hodgepodge of uninteresting and unbelievable characters.
December 6, 2005
Ayelet Zorer gives Nina grace, sexiness and a real personality. She's someone you'd want to see a movie about, though maybe you'd wish the movie were a little more polished than this one.

Israeli society is one that has ample experience processing grief, and Nina's Tragedies explores that challenge with humanity and humor.

The dry humor is disarming. The ensemble cast is engaging and interesting to watch. And the main plot, as it were (will Nadav and Nina find respective happiness?), is suspenseful.

July 29, 2005
Passing eccentricities of character, but serious trouble staging honest and coherent emotional scenes....a surplus of preciousness and a deficit of truth-ringing reality.

The comedy is feather-light and the emotions are drawn on situation, rather than on genuine involvement with substantively developed characters.

Nina's Tragedies is full of gentle, labyrinthian turns, sly and sweet.

Gavison's whimsical and melancholy tragicomedy keeps the Israeli-Arab conflict in the background.

A sad little comedy with enough surprises to keep the viewer guessing, and fine performances by all.
May 13, 2005

You want to get caught up in Nadav's world and ride his emotional roller coaster, but the movie keeps you at a distance (like watching through a window).

It's well acted, and well written, but it rarely delivers the emotional resonance you keep expecting.

The chief problem with this exasperating and shamelessly contrived award-winning Israeli movie: It doesn't know when to stop telling and start showing.
