OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Grigris

Continuing to bring fresh and unusual faces to the screen, Haroun has created a vibrant and richly textured world in this tale of disadvantage and struggle. Unfortunately, when stripped of surface-dressing the story travels paths all-too familiar and doesn't achieve the potency and depth of wisdom reached with A Screaming Man. Sound design and camera are top notch, performances are decent. 3 stars
