Nina's Tragedies Reviews

July 29, 2005
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.

If, at times, he lays on the surrealist touches with a trowel, it's a small price to pay for the goofy tenderness with which he ministers to his hapless, self-absorbed characters, and bestows on them a hard-won peace.

Director/writer Savi Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.

With improbable charm, Gabizon knits it all together, his characters' sexual obsessions and earthiness tempered by a soulful melancholy.
