Critic Reviews for The Wild Pear Tree (Ahlat agaci)

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (75) | Rotten (5)

  • "The Wild Pear Tree" wends its patient, intelligent way toward a rapprochement between the generations, an acceptance of the past and the land, and a weary wising-up of its central figure.

  • The progression of the conversations goes a long way in making Wild Pear Tree feel like an epic; the accumulation of ideas feels downright monumental.

    February 28, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • I can't wait to see it again.

    February 21, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Cemcir's performance, suffused with a kind of wily, defiant grace, has an emotional depth that makes this movie's spirit not just heavy and somber, but also curiously forgiving.

    February 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The unapologetic, sometimes heavy-handed literariness of "The Wild Pear Tree" is leavened by hints of grim comedy and sharp, if subtle, social criticism.

    January 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [A]t its best, The Wild Pear Tree captures not just the feeling, but also the process of coming to terms with one's place in society-and that, if nothing else, requires patience.
