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.
For sheer visual excitement, it's difficult to top Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth's film Khadak.
Cinematography aficionados will be enthralled. Unfortunately, Khadak also has a story to tell, and does so in very slow and baffling ways, especially in a second half chock-full of muddled, exhausting symbolism.
An unusual film set in Mongolia which contrasts the spiritual vitalities of shamanism with the dehumanizing rigors of industrial capitalism.
A highly imaginative film, beautifully scored and well-acted.
A gorgeous panoply of natural wonders and far-flung mysticism, the Mongolian-made drama Khadak is a unique adventure.
...feels like a film school experiment gone horribly wrong.
Not sure why I rented this one, I think it must have been on some film Festival list. Anyway it was out there,
