Critic Reviews for The People Garden

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Mostly ... "The People Garden" is so slow and spare that it barely registers. It just floats through the forest, silent and bloodless.

Top Critic

The set-up promises some kind of dramatic climax but comes up largely vacant.

Winnipeg Free Press

Merely a collection of ominously framed images devoid of purpose.

Film Journal International

Somewhere in this 83-minute mystery story there is a mediocre 20-minute film struggling to get out.

Mark Leeper's Reviews

A drab leading lady and dull story ruin the novelty of this mystery set in Japan's infamous "Suicide Forest."

Movie Nation

When Litz puts us alone in that forest with Sweetpea and her fears, The People Garden has a dark, compelling pull.
