Mimosas Instrueret af Oliver Laxe
The chief pleasure of Laxe’s film is how it makes use of monumental locations in Morocco, setting the story against the grand splendors of mountains and wide-open deserts. The story of Mimosas is relatively simple, but the landscapes give it an epic sweep; they also make the story seem to exist outside of time, the eternal majesty of the setting overwhelming any momentary concerns.

Laxe produces genuine moral dilemmas, not “typical situations.” By attending to the most basic problem of visual art—figures in a landscape—Laxe pinpoints the quotidian extraordinary.

A Western with shades of the uncanny, Mimosas has the openness of a parable: it doesn’t dramatize so much as embody the mysteries of faith.

Hvad siger folk?

  • Lewis Taylor's rating of the film Mimosas

    An enigmatic quest across the Atlas Mountains mesmerises and disorientates in equal measures in Laxe's boundless exploration of faith, landscape and tradition. The exquisite 16mm photography and soundscape carve a rich viewing experience as oblique as it is rewarding; you just have to be prepared to abandon any hope of an answer to the questions the film raises.

  • Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Mimosas

    I've seen mostly only weird-faces people walking, and walking, and sometimes saying pseudo-spiritual muslim bullshits

  • Adam GR's rating of the film Mimosas

    The mimosa flower can symbolize philosophy, expansion, travel, and mourning. If Meek's Cutoff and David Lynch had a Moroccan baby. Mauro Herce's 16mm photography called upon Todd AO glory days. The narrative fuses different planes of existence in a seamless yet remarkable way, knowing when to breathe and be silent. Oliver Laxe intrigues me greatly as a storyteller. An austere, Biblically beautiful location.

  • SiIencio's rating of the film Mimosas

    Laxe was certainly aware of Tommy Lee Jones' The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. Mimosas is an uninspired and unaccomplished copy with a pretension for mysticism and the so often sought-after mesmerising shots as a substitute for lyrical interpretation. Posing against the imposing backdrop of the Atlas mountains is easy but Laxe lacks the vision to deliver something more than just a beautiful postcard.

  • Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Mimosas

    Slow and intermittently interesting, Oliver Laxe just didn't do enough with the direction of this picture to really draw me in as I wanted. It is, however, am enjoyably unique riff on some standard movie tropes.

  • Genadijus L.'s rating of the film Mimosas

    Beautifully shot, interesting parallels between religion, cultural identities, but directing and editing don't create exceptional cinematic experience. This is a typical critically beloved movie which doesn't connect with general audiences.

  • Marco Pierrard's rating of the film Mimosas

    7/10 Dans les montagnes inhospitalières du Maroc, trois hommes unissent leurs forces pour ramener la dépouille d'un cheikh à ses proches. Avec ses airs de western métaphysique, ce périple contemplatif empreint de religion se révèle envoûtant. Chronique complète à lire sur Citazine :

  • Leco's rating of the film Mimosas

    Beautiful cinematography and yet it failed to reach me above that. "Anti-road movie", "mystic Western", "an epic journey through Islamic faith"... well, it didn't work for me. One thing that came to my knowledge afterward was the cast being composed by untrained actors. That said I did like Ahmed portrayal. Given the script, he was definitely the most coherent character together with the best acting.
