A True Masterpiece!
10 April 2014 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

As an avid movie fan who has seen at least 1000 movies, The Forgotten Kingdom is one of the Finest Movies I have ever Experienced.

There are so many positives from the excellent writing, directing, acting, storyline to the musical score and cinematography. It is Deep, even Mystical; Moving and Meaningful; Sublime.

The subtitles were done to perfection. Excellent casting. I highly recommend this movie, the whole family can attend.

Before this movie, I knew very little of Lesotho, now I have been there.

I was fortunate to experience this film at the Minneapolis / Saint Paul International Film Festival.
