  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "TEN CANOES is the first feature shot entirely in Aboriginal languages....TEN CANOES offers a fascinating window into the lives of its indigenous characters, convincingly played by a mainly non-professional cast."
    Total Film

    "In TEN CANOES, de Heer refines his willfully naive style in a pleasing way....[T]he exquisite effects draw TEN CANOES close to Terrence Malick's THE NEW WORLD -- in forms as well as in content."
    Sight and Sound

    "[A] marvel of warm collaboration and shared jokes about husbands and wives, shot both in dreamscape color and pristine black and white." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's an enthralling walkabout through Aboriginal history and culture, highlighting the deep connection of the people to the land."
