“The current buzz around Georgia’s national cinema is set to continue in 2018, with director Ana Urushadze’s wildly imaginative and surrealistic debut feature Scary Mother among the delights to watch for.” – The Calvert Journal

“Further proof that Georgia’s emergent new wave of young film-makers still has plenty of juice in the tank. With prizes and positive reviews making a solid case for niche theatrical business.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Bold debut enveloped in a transfixing style, preserving the ambiguity of borderline derangement. It’s a fever dream translated into the aesthetics of Eastern European social realism.” – Screen Anarchy

“Freedom, ferocity and freakiness in Ana Urushadze’s darkly daring debut” – Variety
