  1. Levi Miah's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Images of such beauty that at the beginning distracted me from some of the (mostly symbolic) dialogue. It's so slight you can easily lose track of what's happening, but it doesn't really matter, the plot isn't exactly dense - although it's metaphorical constructs and fourth wall breaks slowly build into deeper, enigmatic symbologies. A sleepy, sensory film, with a pervading loneliness amongst pure tenderness.

  2. Superfrog's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    This is raw footage, with little voice except for a narrator. A kind of slow version of a political film from the new wave. Without the gripping rhythm that makes Godard interesting.

  3. Ian Pike's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    There is something rather ridiculous about - rather than my doing not a lot - spending time watching a film about 2 people doing not a lot! I'd rather do my own not a lot! Boring!

  4. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Nice to look at, and it has more to it than JUST the seemingly disparate visual moments, but this didn't really work for me. Others may love it.

  5. 00red00's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    A pretty depressing tragic tale. Mesmerising; I found myself transfixed. The 100 minutes without a word being spoken by the characters passed by surprisingly quickly. One of the more unusual films I've seen, but nevertheless really quite engaging.

  6. Trickstian Shantih's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

  7. Stefan Drees's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    A simple but somewhat very poetic dystopical scenario with good photography.

  8. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    a lot of potencial, but not quite there yet

  9. zi's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    I can't say I understood this film - I'd probably have to watch it several times to properly say what it was "about" - but I understand the sentiment, what it touches on in the human experience.

  10. Matt Garite's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Those of you who work on utopian studies will want to check this out.

  11. Dilara Erdem's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    the film smells like kitchen sink drama whick ı liked most of the isolated scenery . At the beginning , I thought its a bit escapist but then, felt that their shared loneliness is an obligation. looking forward to other pieces of the director.

  12. Will Linhares's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Slept in and out. Absolutely glorious. Hope to see it again.

  13. panagiotatos's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    annoying, incomprehensible and pretentious.

  14. Samuel Wells's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Mixing unique imagery that borders on surreal and telling a story of the haves and have nots that feels true, the film waivers between the genres freely. It is quiet, giving full stage for the protagonist to speak to the audience, this works better than in other films. It feels natural, like a story teller speaking around a fire. The film captures my imagination, but doesn't capitalize, running out of energy soon.

  15. captainfez's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Pretty much how I pictured holiday camps.

  16. jack's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    I found something similar to 'A Casa' directed by Sarunas Bartas...

  17. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    A film with the beauty of breath, in which film, filmmaker, and the earth are wrapped up inside one another to the point where they're inseparable. A moving take on environmental themes, and political in that sense. Made me think of Nadia Bozak's great book The Cinematic Footprint, which I'd recommend to anyone who got something out of this. A bit more challenging than rewarding, but plenty rewarding for all that.

  18. Slappy McGee's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    This movie is the most mellow, low-key picture that I've been forced to sit through in a very long while. Some would call it meditative... however, I would call it boring. I'm sure there's "meaning" to be found in here somewhere, but with the terribly monotone narration droning on in my ears, I just couldn't be bothered to look for any. Sorry, but it just bored me.

  19. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    "Love has a tendency of moving further and further, but there is a limit. When that limit is crossed, love turns into hatred. In order to avoid this change, love must become different."

  21. Corey's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Soooo boring. Couldn't follow any of it. Not sure why I watched the whole thing.

  22. marinos@agxivatein.com's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Melancholic, weird, hypnotic, atmospheric with interesting photography and good acting - but also a bit boring and certainly a bit too 'loose' at times.

  23. Armando's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    I enjoyed this quiet and meditative film. Mubi didn't know how to summarize its plot: a rivalry among three men living in a sort of modest utopia. This film is a meditation on the healing power of male friendship and nature. I have never seen a friendship between two men portrayed in such a moving and silent manner.

  24. findfilm's rating of the film All the Cities of the North

    Lower the pulse rate and sink into this meditative observation of life at it's simplest as the central characters simply live in an abandoned rural concept village. Dialogue is non-existent, voice-overs are poetical and dream sequences assist in providing an ethereal study of the men central to this love story. The unexpected conclusion and alt music over the credits provide the jolt back to our reality. Way cool.
