"A cause for celebration. This potent, intimate war movie has the emotional force and intelligence to break through apathy and ignorance. A triumph...a tough-minded, lucid, even gravely beautiful drama." - Film Comment

"A modestly magnificent fable of enemies in a time of war. Ivo is a marvelous character, and Mr. Ulfsak is nothing short of masterly in the role. This remarkable piece of antiwar cinema honors its theme, and the movie medium." - Wall Street Journal

"! Director Zaza Urushadze has performed a small miracle by presenting the insanity of war in such a compact form. Tangerines' insights might not be of the grandiose sort found in Hollywood's massive battle epics. But they are perhaps even more affecting because of the film's intimate scale." - RogerEbert.com

"Powerful... So exceptional is veteran actor Lembit Ulfsak that it has sent me searching for anything he has appeared in." - Los Angeles Times

"Deeply affecting. Sure to touch viewers who see it." - The Hollywood Reporter
