  1. belantara.tindaon's rating of the film About Elly

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film About Elly

    My sister recommended this movie to me. It's about how things fall apart when there's a crisis. Everyone starts playing the blame game. It was refused by Japanese film festivals because the depiction of Iran was different from what they thought it should be. The fact is that this same story could be set anywhere. It's almost like people are the same everywhere.

  3. Linda Wittgenstein's rating of the film About Elly

  4. dionysus67's rating of the film About Elly

    Admittedly a superbly acted film where transitions from a rising bourgeoisie's lightness of being to the collapse of an entire value-system work with admirable accuracy. Punctuated by subtle, yet semiologically flat, color vignettes in the grim interiors, the film's realism obliterates all cinematic aura. Superficially comparable to 'L'Avventura' its handling of form stagnates like the entire group in the final shot.

  5. St.Juste's rating of the film About Elly

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film About Elly

    A very solid entry into the consistently good portfolio of Asghar Farhadi.

  7. ijol's rating of the film About Elly

    Farhadi seems to like to portray stressed out female lead characters.

  8. vordven's rating of the film About Elly

  9. LomasEastwood's rating of the film About Elly

    About Elly is Farhadi's second best film behind his masterpiece A Separation. It comes close. Great storytelling. Highly recommended!

  10. ceknklsn's rating of the film About Elly

    72/100 (Sinemada izleme şansına sahip oldum. Bunun için çok mutluyum. İyi ki daha önceden izlememişim. Ancak Asghar Farhadi'nin yönetmenliğini sorguladığım bir eser oldu. Çünkü şunu fark ettim ki ; yönetmenimiz her filmini aynı yöntemle yapıyor. Yalanlar üzerine kurulu bir psikolojik savaş yaşanıyor. Karakterlerin bunun üzerine yaptığı konuşmalar filmi oluşturuyor... Devamını yoruma yazdım.)

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

  12. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film About Elly

    A woman goes missing while traveling with mostly strangers on a short vacation trip and everyone becomes a suspect. A unique little mystery film that is more about how people react under such circumstances rather than the mystery itself.

  13. 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.

  17. Joe Curtin's rating of the film About Elly

  18. mpho3's rating of the film About Elly

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

  19. 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.

  20. 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

  21. 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.
