Critic Reviews for Desert Dancer
There would seem to be only one thing that the act of dancing cannot free the characters in Desert Dancer from, and that's the movie they're in.
Desert Dancer strays too frequently into melodrama to have much sticking power.
In his feature film debut, director Richard Raymond keeps the story moving despite some dramatic cliches.
Its depiction of the internal tensions in Iranian politics and culture is not what you'd call super-nuanced, but it is sympathetic to Iran as an entity.
Reece Ritchie brings heart to the lead role, particularly in the decisive solo performance that caps the film. But that sequence is as expressive and alive as the rest of the supposedly movement-loving drama is static.
