An intermittently entertaining but ultimately facile ethnographic portrait.
This is an engaging movie depicting some sympathetic people, and is ultimately worthwhile.
Mildly engaging, but not nearly as powerful or illuminating as Lost Boys of Sudan.
Documentary about the "Bushmen" of Namibia gets up close and personal but never connects to its subject.
The film's nagging representational problem stems from its reductive sense of place and portraiture of emotional displacement, which gradually phases out the possibility of thornier revelations.
The many interactions that follow, whether accidental or planned, offer an unusually positive window on the adaptability of human beings, and what we still have to learn from each other, despite our best efforts not to.
Stadler tries his best at boxing in a naturally exploitative circumstance, into something balanced. However, he doesn't help himself at the conclusion, where the returning Bushmen and women aren't afforded any deep reflection of their travels, on film.
