Critic Reviews for Makala
Emmanuel Gras' camera embraces the subject's every move with such rapt intimacy and cinematic poetry it's easy to forget this is not a fictional drama.
One of those sly, low-key films whose early scenes will leave you unsure whether you're watching a documentary or a drama marked by a docu-real aesthetic, Makala's depiction of back-breaking labor is as no-frills as the work itself.
Interesting in a watch-at-home, National-Geographic-Channel sort of way ...
Makala examines the tribulations of desolation and solitude with such respect that it's impossible not to feel compassion.
There are no theatrics in Makala -- it takes a steady and purposeful pace -- but the images caught are worthy of IMAX. It's completely immersive filmmaking.
