Critic Reviews for The Swallows of Kabul

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • It is one of the best films I have seen this year, full stop. It's about whether to stay and fight or flee and be free, like a swallow.

    August 25, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As a medium, animation suits this adaptation well; it would have been nearly impossible to shoot as live fiction or on location.

    May 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [T]he delicacy with which they have translated Khadra's words into images leads us to think that behind there is a considerable ethical and artistic effort make this worthwhile to see. [Full Review in Spanish]

    September 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the film's strong -- some would say heavy-handed -- emphasis on those injustices that are particular to women, its messaging proves somewhat mixed.

    August 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • ...a superb parable, with a lump-in-the-throat ending that's more moving than most live-action movies... there is beauty here too, both moral and visual. Very highly recommended.

    August 6, 2020 | Rating: 18/20 | Full Review…
  • Stories of solidarity and empathy bathed in the sad misery of a dictatorial regime. A movie about being a person. The humanity that is in all comes to light in the worst contexts. [Full review in Spanish]
