"Capernaum" is a searing, unforgettable work.
Soren Andersen, Seattle Times
It's essential viewing for the ways in which it illuminates brutally hard lives many of us could otherwise not imagine, and for the craft of its nonprofessional performers.
Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
Capernaum's odyssey, in which Zain battles the hazards of shantytowns, souks, prisons and betrayals with wily, angry energy, paints him as a resourceful figure fighting impossible odds rather than the passive child victim of charity adverts.
