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]
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.
Some of the acting is amateur but it works, leaving a sense of damage that honours the thousands of known casualties of the war.
A tough-love drama with shades of Bicycle Thieves.
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 Buñuel'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 moving portrait of the effects of war on ordinary lives.
