Despite the remote setting and unfamiliar customs, the clarity of Tusi Tamasese's human drama makes The Orator universally relatable.

In the smallest village in Samoa, the human condition is largely the same as in the biggest city across the world. The Orator's modest scale shouldn't be underestimated, dealing with the eternal truths of humanity

Audience Reviews for The Orator (OLe Tulafale)

½

Well made first feature about outcasts finally finding a voice and standing up for what's important to them. Develops at a natural pace. Fine cinematography, editing, and structure. Satisfying resolution. The combination of competitive oratory and bribery in influencing decision making and power is fascinating.
