Movie Reviews

  • the film is often stately and sluggish with some very daytime-soapy moments of emotional revelation. At other times, it looks more like a filmed theatrical piece
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • the film comes across as less a portrait of complex intellectuals ideologically embroiled in a conflict than as a weepie about innocents adrift
    by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times ]
  • scenes of forced evacuation are necessarily intense, and the desperation of the refugee experience is conveyed, but Bandele still offers a rich and passionate saga
    by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice ]
  • a sweeping melodrama that needed a bigger budget but this is still a moving tale
    3 of 5 by Allan Hunter [Daily Express ]
  • 'Half of a Yellow Sun' bravely takes on too broad a canvas with too narrow a budget, but it's a relevant saga that's worth telling
    3 of 5 by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London ]
