Critic Reviews for The Road to Mandalay

  • Compassionate and honestly told, it is a real empathy machine of a movie. And, of course, you can't watch it without thinking of the desperate plight of Burma's Rohingya Muslims.

  • A layered film that demands discussion and analysis from its viewers.

  • Miki Z further ruins his chances for profundity with an unnecessarily cruel, unexpectedly violent denouement that seems added as an afterthought...

  • Even at its least convincing, The Road to Mandalay is a film firmly grounded in humanity and the many unpleasant truths about our world.

  • Thanks to Midi Z's brilliant command of visual metaphors and compassion for his subjects, [Mandalay] is elevated into an unnervingly immediate portrait of the human cost of displacement.

  • Both Wu Ke-xi and Kai Ko were phenomenal in their performances and Midi Z has probably in Mandalay his best work so far.
