Critic Reviews for The Harvesters

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

A slow-burning and increasingly suffocating variation on the myth of Cain and Abel, The Harvesters (Die Stropers) is the impressive feature debut from Greek-South African filmmaker Etienne Kallos.

This sternly moving, vividly shot rural drama draws quasi-Biblical resonance from its tale of teenage foster brothers locked in a familial and cultural power struggle on a remote farmstead.

Kallos captures this with timeless, expansive visuals, contrasting golden farmlands with densely coloured local villages.

The themes of toxic masculinity and societal roles start strong, and lead actor Brent Vermeulen is hypnotically good - but the film's power is slightly diluted by its muddled narrative.

The main problem with the film is that this suggestive and disturbing reflection... ends up stagnating in the waters of a somewhat confused dramaturgy and a rather flat staging and with limited capacity for resonance. [Full review in Spanish]

Although austere and restrained in its approach, this assured feature debut effectively hints at a churning savagery beneath the surface, which is every bit as unforgiving as the stark landscape.
