Critic Reviews for Capernaum (Capharnaüm)
It's a fairy tale and an opera, a potboiler and a news bulletin, a howl of protest and an anthem of resistance.
There's no reprieve from the extreme poverty that fuels Zain's parents's abuses or that drives Rahil to risk everything to care for her child. Sadness isn't just around every corner of this film; it is in the viewer's face throughout its runtime.
The film amounts to a series of easy emotional lay-ups, devoid of any psychological nuance or challenging inflection.
Labaki depicts underworld barbarity, official indifference, and the crushing weight of traditional misogyny through Zain's ferociously intelligent, deeply principled perspective.
[Director Nadine] Labaki is not without her glosses and her storytelling can be clunky, but the film is graced with many seemingly peripheral moments that nevertheless hit home.
