REVIEWS

“A masterpiece.... The first national cinema of the 21st century”

A.O. Scott, NY Times

“Mysterious, bawdy, emotionally intense, and replete with virtuoso throat singing, this three-hour movie is engrossing from first image to last, so devoid of stereotype and cosmic in its vision it could suggest the rebirth of cinema.”

Jim Hoberman, Village Voice

“Nothing less than a complete revelation and reinvention of cinematic form…. a definite ‘must-see’.”

Katherine Monk, Vancouver Sun

"An astonishing epic film"

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Un film d'une singulière beauté”

Jean-Michel Frodon, Le Monde

“A milestone...a fascinating cultural document”

Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail
