There's a long tradition of making stuff up in documentaries, so while The Eagle Huntress satisfies in the style of a Disney adventure movie... the pat story arcs [will] definitely raise some eyebrows.
"The Eagle Huntress" is all at once an inspiring story for children of all ages to believe that they can do anything, a reflection of the unfairness of gender roles and a rare and unique look at a remote part of the world.
From the start, Aisholpan's adventures are a nonstop rush of exhilaration -- when she clambers down a jagged cliff to nab her eagle from its nest, you get a suspenseful kick worthy of Alfred Hitchcock or The Bourne Identity.
The film is a visual delight and an engrossing look at an ancient culture that preserves its past while keeping it alive by opening it up to women, thereby assuring its future. The Eagle Huntress is a rare, riveting, educational experience.
