Jay Weissberg Variety The film too often falls back on paper-thin characterizations that trip up the director's ambitious attempt to give equal voice to a mélange of weighty personal and political issues. Sep 20, 2020 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter [A] well-acted and intimate tale... Sep 8, 2020 Full Review Joseph Fahim Middle East Eye At 100 minutes, Honey Cigar, feels truncated. Relationships are suddenly cut short and resumed with insufficient conviction; while plenty of the unfolding action is rushed and never given room to breathe Aug 6, 2021 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film Aïnouz is at her best in the moment with Selma, whether it's when she's lost in erotic thought at the beach, during first go at sex or gazing at herself in the mirror. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 20, 2021 Full Review Felipe Rodríguez Torres Caimán Cuadernos de Cine [Director Kamir] Ainouz knows how to convey some truly dramatic changes [while] avoiding sensationalisms that enable the evolution and maturity of his main character.
