Magnificent and haunting. Has the charged tension of a thriller. Bérénice Bejo is lovely and sensually vivid. - Entertainment Weekly

Another brilliantly mounted drama concerning fracturing families, hidden motives and the difficulties of attaining stability in a rapidly changing world. - RogerEbert.com

The film's final scene, which manages to recontextualize everything we've seen so far with a brilliant simplicity, ... establishes Farhadi as one of the best storytellers in cinema today. - Portland Oregonian
