  1. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film About Elly

  2. Joel's rating of the film About Elly

    This film initially wins you over with warmth and charm then twists until you cannot catch your breath. This film left me reeling. In all of Farhadi's films small elegant moments transcend his thriller pacing into a deep study of what it means to be human.

  7. mpho3's rating of the film About Elly

    "A bitter ending is better than an endless bitterness."

  8. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film About Elly

    About Elly is both a compelling mystery movie, as well as a poignant look into the antagonisms of an Iran which is both modernizing as well as archaic.

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film About Elly

    Farhadi parvient à dresser un critique tableau de la société iranienne, à travers ces neuf personnages en porte-à-faux, qui sous leur décontractée apparence occidentalisée vont peu à peu laisser émerger, à travers leurs réactions, les contradictions et les carcans de leur individualité, en parfait et perturbant épiphénomène d'une société islamique lourdement restrictive, inquisitrice et directive. www.cinefiches.com

  10. Viginti_tres's rating of the film About Elly

    His ability to craft utterly human characters and make moving drama out of minutia in their lives is still on show, but Farhadi's least interesting 'problem' makes this his least interesting problem play.

    Amazing acting, direction, and cinematography; absolutely gripping 9/10

  17. anarresti's rating of the film About Elly

    This is film has, in a way, the subtle quality some directors, like Nadine Labaki are able to give to their work. Without ever even coming close to producing an outright militant subversive art piece, they are very diligent in addressing some of the most important social issues. Some chinese director seem to be doing this also, and Kiarostami was always like this. Regimes have a hard time with this. How to censor?

  20. João Rocha's rating of the film About Elly

    The Director give us the most pure vision of human relationships. So nude and real, that you can feel like a third persona in the movie. Well done

  21. The Boreal Chorus's rating of the film About Elly

    Like watching a well-written play with profound implications regarding the tragic need to lie or maintain secrets or honor, as well as confront one's intentions, and conscience. Those in the west who quickly reduce the story to an "Iran" problem fail to see their own societies' flaws and built-in deceptions. Cinema buffs who make easy comparisons to Hitchcock and Antonioni don't see enough.

  22. Rajat Srivastava's rating of the film About Elly

    Wow.....captivating direction . I felt like I was there. This man is one of my favourite directors. He understands relationships and is a good story teller.
