New York Times "...[Akbari] seems to shoulder all of the film's contradictions in her world-weary yet spirited defiance..." Entertainment Weekly "...An exemplary addition to an awesome oeuvre....An unconventional and remarkably moving chamber piece..." Box Office "A conceptual tour de force and a braniac's road movie, Abbas Kiarostami's TEN goes from chilly abstraction to hot emotion in less than 60 seconds..." Los Angeles Times47.6223

"[T]he movie is playful and makes no easy moral judgments." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[E]very shot in the film, really, is its own universe. Window panes and mirrors often relieve Kiarostami from cutting to and fro by including an offscreen character in a gorgeously warped, faded reflection."Chicago Sun-Times "[S]inuous and beguiling....An elegant mystery that resonates beyond its final, jolting moment."Los Angeles Times "Kiarostami seems interested in how one culture interprets and adapts another, and suggests that there are times when the differences cant be reconciled..."A.V. Club "[A]n elusive, formally meticulous and surprisingly powerful movie."New York Times "[L]ustrously photographed reflections play their own intricate games....The greatest fascination is watching these three people when they're planted firmly inside the frame..."Wall Street Journal 3 stars out of 5 -- "Kiarostami follows CERTIFIED COPY with another film-literate relationship drama with the enigmatic overtones of Hitchcock."Empire0.4170524

"[I]t has the tang of real life, though this is realism that has been filtered through 60 or so years of world art cinema..."New York Times 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] quiet, powerful human drama....Writer/director So Yong Kim trains her camera on the young actresses in such constant close-up we immediately feel as trapped as a child and similarly as aware."Box Office "[The director's] choice to fill the screen with nearly everything she shoots has the effect of making plastic toys look like talismans and adult faces look almost mythical in their kindness or indifference." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club "TREELESS MOUNTAIN blends autobiography with fiction....Kim's camera binds us gently but tightly within the shattered world of two little Korean sisters....[An] undeniably wrenching tale."Los Angeles Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "So coaxes superlative performances from her adorable leads, creating an enchanting, challenging film without ever sliding into sentiment."Empire0.2978945
