Critic Reviews for Rough Aunties

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • There are moments of raw, almost unwatchably painful emotion and distress in Kim Longinotto's documentary about the women who work for the Bobbi Bear group, a multiracial volunteer initiative in Durban, South Africa...

    July 15, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Not to say that this is breezy viewing, it's hard to imagine a more miraculously undepressing documentary, given that the subject is child abuse in South Africa.

    July 15, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Longinotto misses the mark in a doc that only scratches the surface of South Africa's broader problems.

    July 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A moving tribute to the dedication, humanity and camaraderie of its female subjects.

    July 22, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Yes, it's tough - sometimes almost unbearable - to watch, but it's also impossible to look away; or to imagine another filmmaker who would approach this subject with such unsparing, steely commitment.

    July 15, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Both shocking and thought-provoking, this -- although sometimes dragging -- develops to more than just a predictable story of child abuse and selfless care.
