Critic Reviews for Khadak
There's an eerie, magical quality to the political and symbolist fable embedded in Khadak, a visually beautiful film about disappearing nomadic culture on the harsh steppes of Mongolia.
It gorgeously recalls Fellini and Koyaanisqatsi and hauntingly pits ancient tradition against science, oppression and industrial rot.
Khadak is beautifully filmed and energetically acted, with standout performances by newcomer Tsetsegee Byamba as Zolzaya and Batzu Khayankhyarvaa as Bagi.
Even when their picture wanders from any reasonable path, it's never less than stunning to look at.
A marvelously acted, brave and absorbing film. Catch it whenever and wherever you can.
Khadak makes the most of Mongolia's vast horizons and swallowing space, the grandeur of emptiness, together with precisely composed pictures, making the whole thing seem like one of Bagi's visions.
Audience Reviews for Khadak
I REALLY wanted to like this, however, it is the slowest-moving film I have ever seen, and there is almost zero dialogue. I found it impossible to understand the story-line, such as it was. Naturally, the critics here all would love this, but I doubt many viewers will have this much patience. Looking forward to another film from Mongolia....
(****): Thumbs Up A beautiful and almost hypnotic minimalist film. This would make a great half of a double feature with the film Tulpan (2009).
very very beautiful. slow-moving and not a lot of special effects; a good story and well-presented. I would like to see this movie again.
