Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: For every misgiving "The Eagle Huntress" invites, it offers inspiration in equal measure, taking the audience on a beautiful, thrilling journey to a part of the world that isstill largely inaccessible.
Fresh: Factor in the feel-good story, Bell's bracing cinematography, and his meticulous observance of the villagers' customs and environments, and the film becomes a multilayered exploration of dignity, perseverance, and progress.
Fresh: The film's feminist message is hardly subtle, but it's still effective. And the peak into the nomad lifestyle - where an eagle just sits on a perch in the living room - is fascinating.
Fresh: This is a wonderfully realistic film. The narrative is simple, almost obvious to a fault.
