Critic Reviews for Waiting for August

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8)

  • Soft in tone and muted in color, "Waiting for August" is a child's-eye view of one family - among many in today's Romanian economy - rising to the challenge of living without parents.

    October 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • What's perhaps most moving in Waiting for August, a quiet film of weight and joy, is its sense of desperate normalcy.

    October 7, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The distinct lack of domestic drama is precisely what makes the doc so gratifying as a portrait of a family averting turmoil in spite of challenging circumstances.

    October 5, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Exploring economic migration from the point of view of children, "Waiting for August" is an impressive, if muted, debut documentary.

    October 2, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Waiting for August is gorgeously shot and compelling in its narrative as the director manages to remain completely subjective in her portrayal of this situation, allowing us as an audience to draw our own conclusions.

    May 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A delicate, relatable portrait of domestic minutiae.

    October 11, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…
