Critic Reviews for Diamond Island

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

This kind of narrative inexactitude might drive some viewers crazy, but there's an emotional truth to it, too.

"Diamond Island" feels like a little dream; a film that, at the end, you don't finish as much as awaken from.

October 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The film ultimately works more as a social portrait than as a rather classic bildungsroman, revealing all the sweat, suffering and heartache it takes to build one massive diamond in the rough.

May 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Cambodian-French helmer Davy Chou's intermittently stylish teen movie lacks narrative momentum but has heart to spare.

The deliberately aimless rhythms and low-stakes plotting make clear that Davy Chou is predominantly interested in cultural anthropology.
