Critic Reviews for The Island
A contemplative fable, not without its wry wit, which effectively ponders the workings of faith, specifically the connection between gnawing guilt and a desire to do good.
The Island is visually stunning in its bleak, blue-hued austerity, but its storytelling is simplistic.
Screenplay by young Dmitry Sobolev, a student at Moscow's VGIK film school, has a familiar, almost folksy structure, making for satisfying storytelling but leaving viewers with less to ponder after the story's final, largely foreseeable twist.
An aggravating combination of piousness, arty self-pity, and knowing silliness meant to speak to higher spiritual truths.
