Movie Info

What would be the shortest route between Entre Ros in Argentina and the Chinese metropolis Shanghai? Simply a straight line through the center of the earth, since the two places are antipodes: they are located diametrically opposite to each other on the earth's surface. During his visits to four such antipodal pairs, the award-winning documentary filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky captured images that turn our view of the world upside down. A beautiful, peaceful sunset in Entre Ros is contrasted with the bustling streets in rainy Shanghai. People who live in a wasteland are connected to people dwelling next to a volcano. Landscapes whose splendor touches the soul are juxtaposed with the clamor of a vast city. These antipodes seem mythically connected, somehow united by their oppositeness. Kossakovsky's movie is a feast for the senses, a fascinating kaleidoscope of our planet. Vivan Las Antipodas! - Long Live The Antipodes! (c) Cinedigm

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Unlike, say, similar globetrotting, image-led works like Koyaanisqatsi or Baraka, Kossakovsky's film is never preachy, allowing the visuals to percolate.

You emerge wondering what (and who) might lie beneath your own feet.

Perhaps a documentary to be more admired than loved.

A living sculpture of sky, water, landscapes, and the tiny figures (humans and other animals) that inhabit them.

Vivan las Antipodas! is never dull, thanks to Kossakovsky's constant inventiveness, always offering fresh perspectives, either through the physical angle of shooting or through the interesting juxtaposition of life on either side of the planet.
