Gavagai is not just an emotional movie, but a sensual one. Tregenza's lyrical camera movements and the actors' recitations of Vesaas's poetry contribute most plainly to this effect...
If language can mislead, Tregenza knows that it is hardly the sole mechanism for human understanding. He has made a film that, in more than one sense, is moving beyond words.
A challenging but rewarding journey.
There are pleasures and intellectual provocations to be had here. But its attempted effects fall flat a little too often.
Gavagai offers moments of sublimity unlike anything you'll see in most contemporary movies. It also tests the patience.
It's an astonishment, realized with a technique and a touch that are unique in the current cinema.
Tregenza is not sketching the wistful unhappiness of the moneyed creative class so much as staring into the divide between souls.
If one wants to see an inheritor to the mantle of Tarkovsky and Bergman, "Gavagai" is essential viewing.
A mesmerizing, quietly powerful and provocative emotional journey brimming with warmth, tenderness and breathtaking imagery.
Gavagai is not an easy film to watch-its relentless sadness can feel oppressive, but in the end it is oddly life-affirming and well worth the viewing.
Rob Tregenza's film is rooted in the communion as well as the sensorial challenges of savoring art.
A delightfully quirky road-and-buddy movie taking place in a remote area of Norway.
