Critic Reviews for Santoalla
"Santoalla" is really concerned with cultures in collision, with what happens when dreams of paradise clash, good intentions become unhinged and the darker angels of our nature gain the upper hand.
While "Santoalla" is a small story, its poignancy resonates, like an echo finding its way through the peaks and valleys of this windswept, eternal landscape.
A concise and well-executed example of smart documentary storytelling.
The threads that remain hanging imbue this peculiar story of paradise lost with a tragic resonance.
A story is only as interesting as what can be drawn from it, and Becker and Mehrer seem reluctant to draw too much, perhaps realizing the confines they have to work within; even at a scant 83 minutes, the movie feels over-stretched.
