Absurdistan has more than a little bit of magic at its heart; it's a tale of love and perseverance, gently winking at its happy viewers.
Writer-director Veit Helmer creates a wildly imaginative world worthy of Gabriel Garca Mrquez at his most playful, drenching it in vivid color and a Slavic sense of bleak humor.
Despite its comedic limitations, this film is up to more than its American adolescent counterparts.
Makes for a lovely hour and a half of old-fashioned storytelling.
Has a folkloric charm buoyed by consistent comic inventiveness.
Absurdistan doesn't have a ton of high-voltage laughs, but it's a nonstop charm machine.
The trip to Absurdistan is worth taking, detours and all.
A simplistic, straightforward tale that's beautifully staged with the same wave of the magical-realism wand that powers Jeunet & Caro's Delicatessen.
A funny and bawdy fable that playfully deals with community, a battle between the sexes, the preciousness of water, and the joy of young love.
A lighthearted charmer, one of the most spirited and enjoyable comedies to hit ... theaters so far this year.
The film isn't much more than light slapstick bookended by a sweet if lust-driven romance.
'Borat' meets 'Lysistrata' in a delightful, surreal tale filmed in Azerbaijan and Georgia.
This movie is really fun despite having little to no dialogue between the characters. There's voice overs for the main two characters that ties everything together but everything else are visual gags and creative use of slapstick. I would definitely recommend this movie, it's fun and charming.
A young couple's about-to-be-consummated love is threatened when the women of their village organize a sex strike against the lazy townsmen who will not fix the pipe that brings water to the hamlet. Set in an exotic, timeless locale and so spare with it's dialogue that it's almost like a silent movie; it's a lusty romantic comedy that manages to feel completely original without sacrificing the romance and sentimentality fans of the genre expect.
A delightful absurdist fantasy of a young couple and their desire to come together while the stars auger well for their relationship. Somewhat of a Russian folk tale of how the women force the men of their village to repair the village water supply. Do not look for logic here. It is sorely lacking. But there is a bit of fun and the young woman, Aya (Kristyna Malerova) is an especially nice bit of eye candy. The landscape is stark and harsh, and the villagers barely eke out a living in a place that is left unclaimed by any country. Yet even here, passions can get inflamed and young love flourishes. Three stars and worth the view, if only for an introduction to another culture.
