All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • This finely directed but tough Tajik tale is part love story, part social critique.

    November 28, 2008 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…
  • Despite the crime-filled third act it has the motor of a US teen sex comedy and could easily be repackaged and called Kamal's Gotta Have It! God knows it couldn't be any worse.

    November 28, 2008 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The look and feel of the movie is involving, especially the cool, controlled way Usmonov allows the story to develop without forcing the pace. Unfortunately, the ending is unconvincing in human terms.

    November 28, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A jolting journey towards a swaggering notion of manhood, directed with assured expertise by Jamshed Usmonov.

    November 28, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The plot's twists and turns are less to the point, or less to be prized, than the whey-faced humour, the solid humanity, the feel for the epiphanic in the everyday.

    November 28, 2008 | Full Review…
  • It feels like a Central Asian remake of some American indie thriller, except that few American films would be prepared to take things so slowly, or with so few words.

  • Atmospheric in its early stages but a little too reticent towards the end, this is nevertheless a bleakly intriguing drama about the darker reaches of the male psyche.

    November 28, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Throw in the inscrutable performances, the peculiar switch in tone and that head-scratcher of a title, and you'd be better off using the hour to tell someone about your childhood.
