An original take on the heroes journey
22 September 2020 | by sackofwhineSee all my reviews

One of the best films out of venice and my personal favorite. The film has an impressive mise en image and mise en scene, blends documentary and fiction filmmaking while constantly engaging the audience through the characters and the absurdity of the story. From all of the films I've seen in Venice and considering that I was part of the Giornate degli Autori Jury this year, and that this was our choice, I would say that "The Whaler Boy" is one of the most ambitious films I've seen in a long long time. It will take you by the hand the minute it starts with a purely magical first shot and the joyous yet melancholic ending.
