You'd find that in investing 87 minutes of your time for "Tangerines," you had viewed not just a poignant anti-war film, but a beautifully realized cinematic parable.
April 6, 2019
Pitch-perfect performances and Urushadze's careful unwinding of the story ensure Tangerines is never less than riveting.
October 31, 2016
A thought-provoking, tiny-but-tough Oscar-nominated Georgian anti-war drama.
October 31, 2016
It's powered by casually great, lived-in acting, particularly from Lembit Ulfsak as the old man under whose roof the gruff Chechen mercenary and his sensitive young Georgian foe find themselves facing off.

The wonderful, sensitive Tangerines is a plea for tolerance -- an appeal which should always be heard. It is a must-see.
August 1, 2016
An oustanding and emotional movie. [Full review in Spanish]

Ulfsak, by all accounts Estonia's Olivier, is the pivot of the all-male cast, his mournful face bringing an intense gravitas to proceedings in an small, but engrossing and handsome film.
April 11, 2016
It represents the horrors of war in a small town setting. [Full review in Spanish]
April 1, 2016
A conventional war drama that is perfectly made and acted. [Full review in Spanish]

The simple nature and sobriety of this tale, along its bittersweet ending and the transparency of its message, make it, in the end, an homage to anti-militarism cinema.[Full Review in Spanish]

Those faultless performances make something special of the material. Many will find it disconcerting to be reminded of the many conflicts... that blew up following the fall of the Soviet empire. Worth cherishing.
November 1, 2015
An elegant but unexciting anti-war film, poignantly told in the form of a humanist parable.
September 20, 2015
Tangerines explores the absurdities and complexities of the ensuing nationalistic, territorial and religious fall-out with an admirably simple set-up.
September 20, 2015
A melancholy morality tale that beautifully illustrates the folly of conflict and blind hatred.
September 18, 2015
A quietly profound study of the unfathomable nature of conflict.
September 17, 2015
The funniest and most profound film about war since Dr Strangelove.
September 17, 2015
It is tremendous storytelling: engaging, intelligent, and with some lovely touches.
September 14, 2015
This is a film that mines the profoundest truths from the simplest of stories and underlines the sheer absurdity of the situation.
September 11, 2015
The anti-war message is not new but the film delivers it eloquently and with quiet, insistent dignity. And sadly, it's a message that's still not being heeded.
July 8, 2015
Although set in a specific time and place, the film's message about human life is universal. And director/writer Zaza Urushadze makes his points without being heavy handed, overt or politically demonstrative.
