Given the fact that the protagonist's smiling acquiescence to bondage comes uncomfortably close to a Stepin Fetchit caricature, James' Journey almost makes forced servitude seem like a jaunty lark.

The most vital force in this movie is actor Shibe. As James, his tenacious naivete gives the movie a sort of heartening electricity.

James offers an ironic yet unflinching look at some of the least idealistic, most cutthroat aspects of Israeli society.

A morality tale that transcends its specific details to resonate with a universality.

This wise, clever Israeli film reintroduces the once-popular concept of film as allegory, as it follows a Christian pilgrim on his bumpy road to salvation.

A young African Christian travels to Israel in an insightful drama about the moral conflict between religious idealism and the crude materialism of the modern world.

Much of the charm of James is attributable to Siyabonga Melongisi Shibe, the absorbing South African actor who portrays the enchantingly guileless religious pilgrim of the title.

It offers two atrocious ethnic stereotypes for the price of one.

A deceptively modest fable of innocence abroad that resonates with the situation within Israel and without.
