«Das permanente Geknalle (Neujahrsfest!) passt gut zum ehelichen Kriegsschauplatz, den Asghar Farhadi differenziert und ohne simple Schuldzuweisungen inszeniert. Famoses Alltagsdrama, turbulent und ergreifend.» Cinema

«Wenige iranische Filme haben versucht, die städtische Mittel- sowie Unterschicht darzustellen, noch wenigere mit der Komplexität des Erzählens und der Tiefe der Charakterzeichnung wie in Ashgar Farhadis ‚Fireworks Wednesday‘. [...] dieses schön voranschreitende Drama über Untreue in der Ehe, durch die Augen eines jungen Hausmädchens kurz vor der Heirat betrachtet, ist psychologisch verzwickt und dramatisch fesselnd.» Deborah Young, Variety
