Movie Info

A further entry in the rapidly proliferating, rich vein of documentary/fiction hybrids, Oliver Laxe's You All Are Captains channels the meta-textuality, genre bending, and sensitivity towards children found in the best work of Abbas Kiarostami and François Truffaut. Laxe himself stars as a self-described "neo-colonialist" filmmaker who goes to Tangiers ostensibly to hold a series of film workshops for disadvantaged street children. It quickly becomes clear, however, that Laxe's intentions are not purely disinterested, as he begins to turn these children into pawns in the service of his own film. As the kids resist Laxe's project, the film becomes a fascinating combination of self-reflexivity, self-deprecation, and documentary portraiture (of the children and of life in Tangiers). -- (C) Anthology
