A successful myth film
21 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Although Malagasian, there is much in this film that restates the myths of Europe as far back as the Greeks and before. The hero, Kapila, is exposed as a baby, in a cow pen no less, and is injured before a foster mother, who is a shroud make, takes him away to the city. Like Jason and many other heroes he grows up lame, and with special powers. He is aided by a mysterious older blind woman, who may be something other than human - In Greek myth she would have been Teiresias. As a young adult, Kapila returns to his village of birth to find his father and his destiny. The time setting of the story is also mythic: there are railway stations, but not cars. A very moving film.
