Critic Reviews for The Charmer (Charmoren)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

A sharply crafted drama that has elements of noirish suspense.

December 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's impressive that Alami can put all this across - romance, suspense and, in the moving final act, a kind of tragedy - and maintain the movie's nimbleness. But he's a natural storyteller.

December 4, 2018 | Full Review…

What seems a premise for an earnest social-issue drama is darkened and complicated, however, by a progressively noir-ish strain of morally elusive mystery.

Top Critic

A carefully assembled, perceptive slow-burner.

October 11, 2017 | Full Review…

It would've been easy for The Charmer to tell a simplistic story about an Iranian immigrant... Instead, The Charmer explores Esmail and Sara's differences, presenting a world where his code-switching never stops.

November 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Director and co-writer Milad Alami's film feels like several fused-together trial drafts of the same narrative.
