  1. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

  2. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    I was quite lost when the new characters arrived and the real life itw appeared, but i loved it in the end. I love mystery movies (from true story or not), and this one is excellent, with an unusual setting :)

  3. Aukse's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    3.5 Entertaining (CON)FUSION "Based on true story" is misleading. Don't trust this! Stylish elements (soft coloring, electronic sounds, costumes from 60s, waking-dream desert and terracotta valley) and mysterious story make it attractive for the taste of young and modern viewers

  4. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    Incollati alla poltrona per capire cosa rappresenti il drago. Un film sul recente passato iraniano, poetico girato in maniera fresca, hipster, che gioca col genere e con la storia del genere. Un "oggetto altro" nel nostro panorama cinematografico. Anomalo ma bello

  5. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    Two feelings: 1) Its awesome. The soundtrack is awesome, the visuals are awesome, the story is creepish and awesome. 2) I probably understand like 20 percent of all references.

  6. Rūta Švedkauskaitė's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    It's the movie which is capable to create and to draw you into it's own universe. True story turned psychedelic dream? Yes, please.

  7. N!nA's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    Some nice shots, messy story..!

  8. Spiritchaser's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    The great Abbas Kiarostami may have passed on, but certainly not his legacy on a generation of talented Iranian filmmakers with the quest to separate fact/fiction in their country's highly regulated media which makes for highly artistic and creative uses of film-making.

  9. Mihai Cristea's rating of the film A Dragon Arrives!

    "At the beginning of the film you see 'based on a true story'. To what extent is this story true and what is truth to you?"
