Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There's a spirit that soars in this nature doc about a 13-year-old who becomes Mongolia's first female eagle hunter in 12 generations. You'll be hooked.
Fresh: The film lends itself to grand pronouncements about feminism or animal rights or some combination of the two, but at heart this is an engaging story about a girl and her eagle.
Fresh: Otto Bell's The Eagle Huntress is everything you could ask for in a documentary, and more. It's the more that distracts from time to time, but not enough to spoil our pleasure.
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.
This truly is a beautifully photographed film that gives you a sense of the people, of the region and of the spirit of Ashilopan and of the love between father and daughter.
A really great movie - a 13 year old amazing girl and her huge eagle. Wow, just loved it.
