A kind of tone poem that slowly but surely casts a spell over the viewer.

While the two halves of the film don't quite mesh, this is highly recommended for those who are intrigued by post-colonial tropes of the sort explored in "Even the Rain".

Is it reality being captured or drama staged for the camera? Truth or fiction, or both?

I can't say I enjoyed it, but I acknowledge that "You All Are Captains" has something to express that can't be said except the way it's said, and that way there be art.

[A] brilliantly constructed deconstruction of "truth" versus "fiction."

The spontaneous play of the children pushes You All Are Captains beyond easy reflexivity and into the stuff of lived existences directly captured.
