Movie Info

Another Day of Life is a movie based on the book written by legendary Polish war correspondent Ryszard Kapuściński. It tells the story of a journalist, left to himself to write a feature story on the civil war in Angola on the advent of its regaining independence in 1975. Kapuściński is an idealist, a friend to lost causes and revolutions. Although he had been to many front lines before, Angola was to change him forever. He was to get closer to the realities of war; he was to discover that journalistic reporting was far too limiting for him; he could dispatch his reports to the editor's office by telex, yet his enormous imagination and internal voice are ill-fitted to this message-limiting machine. Kapuściński experienced a dangerous journey into the heart of darkness which changed him forever. He left for Angola as a reporter to come back as a writer. He discovered that the honest and idealistic world he was seeking does not exist in Africa... and so he created it by means of a typewriter and became a writer of a world renown.

Critic Reviews for Another Day of Life

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

A punchy, spectacular hagiographic hybrid.

May 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Dissonance between fantasy and reality aside, this poetic essay moves us because we know that its evocation... is very present in that acute pain from which humanity will never recover completely. [Full review in Spanish]

October 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The fusion of styles does not end up working and looks more like a mess than an organic whole. [Full Review in Spanish]

October 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The precise combination of the elements that form the film gives place to a kaleidoscopic and vibrant experience of emotion. [Full Review in Spanish]

October 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Measured but naturally emotional recollections dovetail with the more impressionistic animated segments to scrutinise the psyche of war.

October 23, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

You stay with the experience of having been submerged in a history of colonialism, war, destruction and committed journalism. All told as never before. [Full review in Spanish]
