The film is unnaturally tense. Following the manipulative hand of the father-in-law, the young wife and mother is forced to choose her word over the family, community and the loving bond she shares with husband and children. After careful research, Faramarz asserted that the story was relevant to an epidemic of forced marriage currently rippling across the region and beyond. Faramarz's insightful film seeks to educate the world on this practice in the hope that the oppressed will come to light in their quest for freedom and acceptance. Brimming with heart and hope, Donkey envokes The Graduate and The Legend of Bagger Vance and crackles with enough youthful spirit and charming banter to leave you smiling.
Aris, Hal and Ben, three young friends, embark on a round-the-world steamboat trip. In the course of the adventure, the boys encounter a group of Native Americans and discover that the West was all part of their own homeland. Filmed in the Philippines, this visually stunning film boldly tackles the complexities of Empire and British-American relations with an engaging portrayal of an antagonist society. Strong performances and wonderful cinematography enliven the story and make it a vibrant, yet strangely melancholic, soap opera.
Staff *** The third feature from the early 1980s, Australian drama Donkeys takes us on a poignant journey through the troubled relationship between Mike, a young man, and Tina, a transsexual. Donkeys is directed by Terence Davies, creator of the two hour theatrical film The Long Day Closes, which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1976. Using naturalistic realism, Davies shows us just what it means to be gay in England’s working class suburbs in the ‘70’s. Though the film sometimes over-intellectualizes the issue, especially at the very end, the performances are superb, including a very funny and heartbreaking turn by the director.
