At its best, the film seems as dreary a travelogue as that Nia Vardalos vehicle "My Life in Ruins." At its worst, "Chaplin of the Mountains" feels like an overambitious film-school thesis with superfluous political and philosophical posturing.
There's a simplicity and directness in "Chaplin of the Mountains" that keeps it aloft; its wholehearted sincerity feels much fresher than any number of slicker, more cynical films.
A charmingly shaggy road trip with clear political undertones, "Chaplin of the Mountains" winds its way across the Iraqi Kurdistan region, using silent movies to give voice to the troubles of a war-battered people.
In real life, this makes a nice story. As a movie, it is a cavalcade of cliches.
Deadened by milquetoast characters, uninspired landscape photography, and no perceptible stakes.
A road movie through liberated Kurdish territory in northern Iraq. The personality of the wonderful Kurdish people shines through.
