  • What sets "Orphanage" apart are the moments when Qodrat's imagination makes Bollywood-esque musical numbers out of his fantasies.

  • A small yet touching chronicle where innocent teenage boys fall prey to socio-political forces way beyond their control.

  • The way in which the script links different situations and points out subplots without offering a true evolution until its final minutes is another important lack in a film that, despite everything, houses estimable ideas. [Full review in Spanish]

  • The Orphanage is a beautifully photographed, quietly methodical portrait of 1989 Kabul.

    May 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While Afghanistan's current plight is well-observed cinematically, stepping back to examine life on the ground three decades ago offers a rare but worthy viewpoint.
