Critic Reviews for The Black Hen

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9)

  • With a nod to Robert Flaherty's ethnographs, director Min Bahadur Bham conveys a sense of centuries of unchanged, pre-industrial living, suddenly encroached by modernity.

  • There's a rough and ready enchantment -- a magic of mood and landscape -- in the prizewinning Nepalese film The Black Hen.

    December 27, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A tough-love drama with shades of Bicycle Thieves.

    December 8, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is an engaging movie and a valuable debut, notable for disturbing and unexpected dream sequences, tapping into the boys' deepest fears - sequences that reminded me of Buuel's Los Olvidados.

  • It appears to be a simple tale about two boys in a remote... rural community on a quest to retrieve a hen that one's father has sold. From such a simple beginning, director Min Bahadur Bham is able to portray an entire society in microcosm.

  • A film of a remarkable visual force, Kalo Pothi seems a more interesting work in the anthropological aspect than in a cinematographic one. [Full review in Spanish]
