Critic Reviews for Urok (The Lesson)

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (4)

  • The Lesson takes a simple, and hardly extravagant premise and somehow constructs, out of this initial set-up, a gripping, increasingly desperate, and often wildly intense narrative rollercoaster.

  • There's an awful fascination to this bleak movie from Bulgarian writer-directors Petar Valchanov and Kristina Grozeva, whose feature debut has something of the deadpan drear and social satire of the new Romanian cinema.

    December 3, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The kinetic yet poker-faced filmmaking renders the narrative turns especially jolting.

    May 22, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The talented Margita Gosheva grippingly plays an assertive, hardworking, honest heroine, but that's all she'll do here. Following her static, white-knuckled strain is compelling but not exactly a delight.

    April 9, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's akin to watching someone get their knuckles cracked by a ruler, over and over again.

  • The script's mordant humor only makes Nade's situation feel more bleak.
