An exceptional emotionally moving spiritual drama about an older Inuit couple trying to keep their traditional ways while dealing with isolation issues in the frozen tundra.

There is a balance of isolation and expanse in the film "Aga" that cannot be feigned, a sense of the enormity of existence measured against the fragile nature of single lives. The result is both wondrous and chilling.

Ága is a subtle yet unmistakable reminder that there are thousands, even millions of stories in the world that have almost nothing to do with anything electronic.

Despite the film's laborious pacing, its humanistic themes come together powerfully.

A tale of two realities

You [get] such a sense of place here. It's a really striking film.

The slice of life story has the look and feel of a documentary work and, as it immersed me in Nanook and Sedna's daily struggle, I felt I was living it with them.

...a mysterious, stunning, melancholy tale about a disappearing way of life, one being corrupted by humankind's progression..."Ága" goes to the ends of the earth to reveal global truths.

It is the singularly most informative film I can think of that came out this year. Ága is representative of the way we forget our own histories.

A small gem of focused filmmaking, "Ága" tells a minimal story so beautifully it holds us completely.

While much of the film quietly observes details in this white-on-white place, filmmaker Milko Lazarov gently allows a story to unfold in ways that almost silently convey the weight of the world. It's an transcendental movie that isn't easy to shake.

It's doubtful he set out to helm a demo reel for why local movie houses need to stay open, but it sure is a pleasant added bonus.

Visually stunning portrait of the spiritual struggles of indigenous people to survive.

[C]o-writer/director Milko Lazarov ... depicts the deep, almost unspoken bond between this couple with tender and acute perception.
August 28, 2019
Milko Lazarov seems driven to record the inner workings of a singular slice of Inuit culture before it goes the way of the reindeer.

This is a world rarely evoked in the cinema, and it's well worth a visit to the cinema to see Aga if only to experience the emotional conclusion of this beautiful, hypnotic film.

Lazarov lets his tale unfold gradually like a gentle thaw
April 10, 2018
Finessed performances, astonishing images, a concise script, and a well-handled sense of pace and mood all combine for a movie filled with its own considerable charms.
March 6, 2018
Milko Lazarov's ga is a gorgeous rumination on a culture that's slowly fading into obsolescence.

There are enough moments of beauty, charm and dry humor along the way to maintain engagement and interest.
