Reviews: The Pirogue (2013)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Christopher Bourne @ Twitch
    • Excerpt: The power of “The Pirogue” lies not in the novelty of its narrative, but in the cultural specificity and the vividly rendered details of the circumstances which lead people to risk their lives for the possibility of a better existence that may well prove illusory.
  • Mathieu Li-Goyette @ Panorama-cinéma [French]
  • [New – 3/21] | Andrew Wyatt @ Look/Listen (St. Louis Magazine)
    • Excerpt: Rather than presenting a naturalistic portrait of the immigrant journey, La Pirogue employs the conventions of man-versus-the-elements action thrillers, nimbly blending them with character-centered melodrama into a satisfying package.
