"Directors Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud prove they are as visually adept with live action cinema as they are with animation, unveiling Chicken With Plums, their follow-up to their much hailed 2007 debut, Persepolis, as an extravagant adaptation of Satrapi’s own graphic novel. As sumptuously gratifying as their film is, there’s a definite inadequacy in its naïve considerations of love and commitment that casts a hollow pallor over the proceedings." - Nicholas Bell for IONCINEMA.com http://www.ioncinema.com/reviews/chicken-with-plums-review

4 Star Review: Ursula Meier's Sister:

"Swiss director Ursula Meier returns after her solid 2008 debut, Home, with Sister (or L’enfant d’en haut), a powerful survival tale of a young child, navigating through his world as a hustler of stolen goods. With styles and themes akin to the works of the Dardenne brothers, Meier’s bleak second feature proves she is indeed a director of significant talent, her latest title a Swiss sister to the Belgian The Kid With a Bike."

Dead Man’s Burden Review -
"While it doesn’t reach the height of exuberance seen in many of the films it invokes, Dead Man’s Burden is an intriguing effort, and one that gives us an unusual female, whose soul is as dry as the split ends of her sun burnt hair."  - http://www.ioncinema.com/reviews/laff-2012-dead-mans-burden-review

People Like Us Review: "The pulpy, sudsy story, which Kurtman also co-wrote, calls for subtlety, an ear that can straddle the thin line between corny sap and emotional turmoil, or at least a hand that can steer the ship away from a manipulative and ruinous Siren’s voice, soothingly crooning that there’s no such thing as overdoing it. Alex Kurtman is not the man for the job." - http://www.ioncinema.com/reviews/people-like-us-review

"Rome With Love perhaps most resembles Allen’s 1972 Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex*But Were Afraid to Ask, but the broad nature of this latest film flies fast and falls flat, moving everyone along at a nice pace, but going nowhere in particular. There’s a few humorous twinkles by some of the A list cast, and nearly every segment has a scene stealer (Judy Davis, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz), though no one gets to play an actual character." - Nicholas reviews Woody Allen's To Rome with Love http://www.ioncinema.com/reviews/to-rome-with-love-review
