Critic Reviews for War Dance
It is wonderful to watch this joyous slice of the cultural lives of these victimized, traumatized children struggling to survive and build a better life in a desperately troubled part of the world.
This film offers a child's perspective on the ravages and complexity of war and is also a convincing testament to the healing power of creative expression.
'The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places,' Hemingway wrote in A Farewell to Arms. That statement might stand as the summation of this documentary, which celebrates the strength of winsome, broken children.
Because no one dares to call a film about suffering children boring, Fine and Nix slack on analysis and investigation and concentrate on gorgeous saturated cinematography
War/Dance is the sort of documentary that's meant to appall us, to shake us out of our uninformed complacency. And yet there are moments in the film that may make an audience uncomfortable in ways the Fines may not have intended.
Audience Reviews for War Dance
A wonderful healing experience for children made to grow up far too early in their lives.
Emotional, tragic and yet uplifting story that shows the transitory power of music. This is a must watch film that is shot beautifully and is told from the mouths of not talking heads, but the children themselves. Also, if you ever wondered why the US must continue to offer food and funding to war torn countries, this film will definitely answer your question. I just wanted to reach through the screen and hug every one of the kids in this film. Be prepared and have Kleenex next to you just in case.
Compulsory viewing on subject matter alone.
