Critic Reviews for Sibel

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The film sits in an uneasy area, wanting to reproduce real life in this "exotic" village yet forcing it into a straightjacket of primal legends and inorganic notions.

Top Critic

Perceptively, Sibel understands patriarchy as a straightjacket affecting both men and women.

Sibel ticks off so many currently hot-button-category boxes... but in the hands of co-directors Çagla Zencirci and Guillaume Giovanetti and co-screenwriter Ramata Sy, they mould and decay into a musty laundry list of formula items.

The film illuminates patriarchy's persistence - and the sexual repression that goes with it - in rural Turkey but thankfully never uses a sledgehammer.

A nicely shaded, satisfying tale of female empowerment with a striking central performance from Damla Sönmez.
