This was such a lovely film for everyone, and it seems to be ending its
New York run this Sunday, October 16th after just 17 days. Why? Not
only did it receive excellent reviews, the showing I attended last
Saturday afternoon in the counter-cultural East Village was packed! As
a much needed quality family film, "Duma" should have been given a wide
release and much more promotion. I rarely go to the movies, and I was
waiting and hoping for its release for months.
A wonderful family film with affection, learning, adventure, mystery, and respect between the boy Xan and his cheetah, Xan's father and mother, and Xan's friend Rip. It also has a Prodigal Son theme. The cinematography is exquisite, with the golden cat with the golden eyes and the golden African desert and savanna that seem to stretch on for eternity.
A beautiful, humorous, gentle, poignant, and touching film about love, kindness, and mercy. A genuinely loving family. The courage to grow up. Are these values too truthful for Hollywood, or they too real for the general public?
