Critic Reviews for Viramundo
'Viramundo' makes up in sheer warmth what it lacks in incisiveness.
Brazilian singer-songwriter-turned-politician Gilberto Gil may be taking a "musical voyage" around the indigenous populations of Australia, Africa and his homeland but documentarian Pierre-Yves Borgeaud is all at sea when it comes to making his point.
It's a joyful, illuminating tale of rootsy world music, enhanced by viewing it through Gil's eyes.
A fan-pleasing snapshot of a musical great at the peak of his powers.
It's a heartwarming experience, a little reminiscent of Wim Wenders's Buena Vista Social Club, and the music is attractive and authentic.
