Review: The Kings of the World

By news / On / In Art, Releases

All throughout The Kings of the World, it’s clear that the author knows what she’s talking about, that she’s no stranger to the land that she’s filming, and that her protagonists’ reality isn’t too far removed from her own. On this honest basis, Mora duly extracts gold from these five youngsters, to whom it’s impossible not to grow attached over the course of the journey. The same goes for the landscape and the various other individuals cropping up throughout the film. In the end, we feel as if we’ve borne witness to an important work, a portrayal of a time and place which is as exhaustive and accurate as it is poetic and touching. via
