  1. John Burgess's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    A truly great premise for a movie, let down by some ham acting at each end. The film-noir device makes for a terrible opening; the police sub-plot is irrelevant and the ending would have been better if it had left us all guessing. But the mid-section redeems the entire film. If you'd have quit while you were ahead. M. Bablauni, you could have had a real masterpiece on your hands.

  3. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Folks, I'm starting to think there's something up with the French.

  4. Chris Gillespie's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Creative setup and concept, although l felt it was too predictable after the main reveal. It could've used a few extra surprises in the third act. Powerful black and white imagery.

  7. Superfrog's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    The photography is gorgeous, and the film pretty powerful. Not normally a genre that would appeal to me and yet I was griped.

  8. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Hadn't seen this since it was first released. On a second viewing it still works well as critique of structural inequality in society; but whilst the tension is inevitably reduced the nagging sense that the virtuoso central section is let down by insufficient attention to the gamblers and the wider context remains.

    La historia bien narrada, eso es lo esencial. La fotografía muy buena y bien lograda, felicitaciones

  10. Zanna Walsh's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    What a dark, brooding, sombre film this is. Shot in black and white, (no pun intended) was perfect for the mood. Even with the picture used for the film, the premise was still a shocker to me. And as it becomes clearer, all the more harrowing. Perfect for a wet Saturday afternoon.

  12. easypz's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    An exercize. Competent enough to generate some minor interest, but forgettable because it's empty. Early mix of awkward cuts, preposterous setups & melodramatic music hinted at a self-conscious parody of noir. Yay! But the film then abandons that style and takes itself seriously -- without introducing meaningful elements worth such an approach.

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Un scénario tranchant et direct comme une balle traçante, entre esthétisme formel et viduité conceptuel, qui balance entre véritable création artistique et bluff médiatique à connotation hautement commerciale. Une séquelle du film est prévue pour 2008. C'est tout dire... www.cinefiches.com

  14. Adam Hoss's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    I'm not sure I've ever sweat so much watching a film.

  15. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    3-4. Simple, crisp, and rides the power of its script's brevity. I'm open to the idea that this one might miss out on some meaning by the more minimal nature of its content, but that it's about telling via action means it is what cinema should be about. And every shot is tightly composed, and visually busy, in spite of its abject minimalism, giving it the best of both worlds, in a sense. It's a Hell of a movie.

  16. Antonio's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    The way the main character conveys Fear to the audience is majestic

  17. Didonne's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Un excellent film noir qui maintient le spectateur en haleine. Le magnifique travail sur l'image en noir et blanc permet de supporter la violence inouïe de certains plans. Très perturbant ; la Française des jeux n'a plus qu'à aller se rhabiller.

  18. Mario C.'s rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    film that goes fast, distressing, thanks to the ability with which the director inserts the protagonist in an absurd situation. Quick rhythm, fast editing, white/black flattening and moving away - everything contributes to create the atmosphere of a nightmare. Recommended!

  19. sue joy's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Wow - has you on the edge of your seat. Excellent.

  20. Hockley Cinema's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Daringly original and bleakly limned. Primitive in a cold and controlled (yet not contrived) manner. One of the very best films to come out of Europe in the last 20 years.

  21. Elijah Koome's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Builds tension to impossible levels. A black comedy masterpiece.

  22. Dilara Erdem's rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    Sovyet sonrası yaşanılan özgürlük bunalımının ardından 17 yaşında Fransa'ya göç eden Gürcü yönetmenin baskılardan dolayı yaşayamadığı çocukluğunu ilk filminde ''seçimlerle belirlenen hayatlar'' temasıyla yansıtıyor.

  23. J. O.'s rating of the film 13 Tzameti

    A tense, ice-cold little thriller. Despite the flaws and holes and problems, I remember renting this when it was released, and enjoying it.
