"Director and co-writer Nadine Labaki has a careful, delicate hand when it comes to balancing the precious and the poignant." Mary F. Pols Time Magazine
"To Labaki's credit, she manages to take the film between tonal extremes credibly and without dulling the impact of either the humor or the horror." Tasha Robinson AV Club
"brave and startlingly funny..." Joe Morgenstern Wall St Journal
"The stupidity of violence and...religious hatred are beautifully boiled down into a microcosm of humanity that [director Nadine] Labaki infuses with vibrant moments of laughter, music and an uneering sense of how differently men and women view the world. " Jim Schembri 3AW
