Critic Reviews for Jirga
A remarkable truthfulness shepherds Benjamin Gilmour's tightly written and conscientiously produced drama "Jirga" as it renders an image of Afghanistan not as a ravaged battleground but as an arrestingly rich land.
This movie is undeniably a remarkable achievement. You wish it had just a little more dramatic heft.
The strain of making it sometimes shows, but [Jirga] is a quite remarkable piece of work all the same.
It's a fine film, even without the backstory. Gilmour shows a real empathy with the Afghani non-actors. Their character and traditions are part of the subject, and both are surprising.
