Critic Reviews for Teza

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • The herky-jerky quality of the experience, exacerbated by writer-director Gerima's restless editing, makes Anberber's story difficult to follow.

  • Ultimately rewards the viewer's patience with a potent sense of Ethiopian history and culture.

    Top Critic
  • Both intimate and sprawling in its scope and reach, Teza is a remarkable portrait of the tortured political and social history that Ethiopia suffered in the last decades of the 20th century.

    Ted Fry

    Seattle Times
    Top Critic
  • He doesn't just reject political, philosophical, sexual, racial and spiritual dogma of every sort. He seems to view dogma itself as the one true evil: the ideological armor of bullies throughout history; the enemy of freedom, of art, of happiness itself.

    April 2, 2010 | Rating: 3/5
  • tands as a richly expansive portrait of a man caught between an untenable exile and the terrible consequences of his homeland's violent past.

    March 31, 2010 | Full Review…
  • The storytelling is a deliberate muddle, jumbling time and space to suggest Anberber's aghast confusion. But if you stick with it for 140 minutes, everything does come together in an ending that is lyrical and devastating and just about perfect.
