We’ve got one new release this week, the Oscar-nominated Capernaum directed by Nadine Labaki. Read on for a selection of reviews or pop in to the IFI to make up your own mind.

“Capernaum is a sobering film for the times that we are living in and we should all see it”
5/5 – RTÉ

“Nadine Labaki’s film is frantic, fast, full of colour and feeling and bursts of raw humour. It’s not a perfect film, but it is a fine one”
4/5 – Irish Independent

“There is passion and compassion here, and Labaki’s film brings home what poverty and desperation mean, and conversely what love and humanity mean.”
4/5 – Guardian

“An enormously engaging, endlessly humane hunk of urban melodrama”
5/5 – Irish Times

“Capernaum is a searing, unforgettable work.”
4/4 – Seattle Times

“The last shot had me choking back sobs”
