Variety, fragment: "If the ancient, landlocked, scantily voweled Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan gave the 2017 festival circuit one of its more unexpected minor hits with Aktan Arym Kubat’s mesmerizing fable “Centaur,” it looks like it might repeat the feat in 2018 with Temirbek Birnazarov’s “Night Accident.” A hushed, heartsore, wholly immersive story of tentative human connection across a generational gulf, the film, which world premiered in the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, fully deserves to take up the baton for this distinctive and exciting national cinema next year. Its deceptive quietude imbues the most banal of incidents — the wrapping of a bandage, the cracking of an egg — with fascination, and lets faces and actions convey the simple but increasingly evocative narrative with almost silent-movie elegance. Like “Centaur,” it proves Kyrgyz cinema’s facility for spinning lyrical, quasi-mythic gold out of everyday straw. Though shot through with a strain of stone-faced humor, it saddens the soul a little, but it’s a wise and soothing sort of sadness: a story about a last chance."
