  • If "Our Lady of the Nile" is ultimately not the definitive telling of the genocide, it is something equally valuable: the tragedy's illuminative prequel, a straightforward origin story faithfully adapted from an essential text.

  • Rahimi's film is a heart-breaking look at the corruption of innocence: breathtaking cinematography and a sprightly jazz-infused score bring out how sweet that innocence was, so it's all the more devastating to see it cruelly snatched away.

  • Director Atiq Rahimi has once again created a beautiful and disturbing work of cinema.
