Like its subject, Gabbeh is woven with art.Combustible CelluloidJanuary 13, 2006
Makhmalbaf attempts to follow the carpet idea by making his film dreamily romantic and non-realistic. Events seem to leap around in time and space, much like a dream.Filmcritic.comSeptember 29, 2005

Makhmalbaf weaves together different threads into an unusual and intriguing film.Film ScoutsApril 17, 2002
It is the visual imagery of the sheep, the wool being dyed, the rugs being made that take center stage.Spirituality and PracticeMarch 03, 2002
This poetic film affirms the knarled beauty of the natural world and the way stories give shape and meaning to life.San Francisco ExaminerJanuary 01, 2000

Poetic and evocative, but too short at 75 minutes to unroll enough of a story, this gentle film nonetheless revels in the colors and everyday wonders of life.
