Moolaade

exhilerating music, scenery, detailed imagery of a way of life and a brilliantly brave rebell

(Edit) 31/07/2006

This is a moving, disturbing and visually stunning film. The subject matter of female circumcision is brought home sensitively, the little girls running away from the ceremony to find protection from Coll is a little shock after becoming immersed in the beautiful filming, the landscape, clothes culure and the magnificent Mosque, The cast are convincing, beautiful music all the way through and the ending surprising .The interview with the director if nearly as uplifting as the film, as he descibes his search for location, how he organised the actors and children and shot the film without a hefty budget and in difficult climatic conditions, but mostly his efforts to take the film round villges in Africa to increase awareness about thee subject matter. A must, must see film!

Where Eskimos Live

ASTONISHINGLY BAD

(Edit) 16/08/2006

a very disappointing film,desperately trying to be seroius and meaningful but the result was trite, cliched, predictable and badly acted with an impossibly stupid storyline. I thought anyway.

Laura's Star

What a lovely film!

(Edit) 16/08/2006

This is just a wonderful film, with excellant animation and wordover in English .A magical and adventurous story that presses all the right buttons for children of all ages including the very young, and I have watched it about 7 times!A pity more isn't made of these lovely non- Disney films!

Turtles Can Fly

A glimpse of the conditions of life for children in Iraq

(Edit) 03/12/2007

I have just watched this and was so utterley moved, I am still crying, A tribute to all children in war torn countries. the care shown towards each other and the amazing bravery of them all, especially Satellite, who endeavours to provide work [ picking mines from the fields] for all the children in the villages, and then the refugee. The adult males [ there didn't seem to be any females] were reliant on him to find satellite dishes and erect them so they could watch the news.It is also the story of a brother and sister and a heartstoppingly lovely child, and how they try and deal with their lives.We are all I think fairly ignorant of many details of life before and after Saddam , this gives us an insight that will remain embedded in the mind.
