Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A strong entry in the recent plethora of Iranian neo-realist films."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"In its quiet way, Taraneh touches the hot issues -- jail, divorce, teenage love, unwed maternity -- and comes up with a convincing, positive answer to all."
‑ Deborah Young, Variety
"Sadr-Ameli opts for a tone of distanced objectivity, where melodramatic revelations are slow-pedaled; his documentary background is evident in the detailed portrait of institutional sexism and an even-handed struggle with the ethics of abortion."
‑ R. Emmet Sweeney, Village Voice
"Taraneh is superbly played by same-named Taraneh Alidousti, whose angelic face is made for the movie camera."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"This Iranian film quietly observes the title character's transformation from naïve schoolgirl to wary but proud single mother."
‑ Dana Stevens, New York Times
"Sadr-Ameli's unflagging empathy and Alidousti's confident performance keep us rooting for this young heroine, who refuses to accept the limits forced upon her by both society and the law."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
