  1. Magister Noctis's rating of the film Letters to Max

    I'm not interested in this kind of movies. I looked at all 30 that are available now too, and spitefully, nothing that is worth watching in my spare time. Rather waste of time, all of them. Sorry.

  2. Samuel Wells's rating of the film Letters to Max

    An absolute treat to have stumbled upon this film. Entering this film with no prior knowledge of it allowed for me to be totally absorbed by the premise and atmospheric pace of the film. A truly wonderful film and one which I would recommend to anyone curious to the winding nature of the film. Just be sure to stick with it until the end.

  3. Charlie's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Es la primera película de Baudelaire (de las que han puesto aquí) que sí me gustó y que disfruté mucho. Me encantó la manera de presentar la historia.

  4. mgaspa's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Con esta pelicula he entendido muchas cosas que desconocia. Es como una vision del reves de la realidad que normalmente nos es dada donde se refleja solamente los intereses geopoliticos de nuestros respectivos paises.

  5. Tibulle85's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Parfois, certains cinéastes proposent des remakes cachés et réussis de leurs précédents films ratés. E. Baudelaire retrouve en Abkhazie une simplicité narrative qu'il avait précédemment perdue dans un scénario tortueux au Liban. Un grand dépaysement, une photo magnifique dans une quintessence d'ex-république d'URSS, des réflexions géo-politiques (sur ce qu'est un pays, sur la guerre) qu'on suit avec intérêt.

  6. Jean-Jacques Dusuzeau's rating of the film Letters to Max

  7. Durandré's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Un curieux film, qui réussit la prouesse d'être limpide ET énigmatique. Une de ces découvertes don Mubi a le secret...

  8. DrFirestone's rating of the film Letters to Max

    On the surface it's a film about Abkhazia, it's past, complicated situation, and possible future. However then, the film asks deep and very interesting questions about ourselves, our memory, the substance of a "nation". Very powerful towards the end, a reminder how subjective we are by nature?

  9. Julian Renard's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Film assez remarquable par sa réalisation. Je crois que c'est la première fois que je regarde un film épistolaire (est-ce que cela existe vraiment ?). Je ne suis pas non plus habitué à l'intervention d'un narrateur omniscient. Le thème de l'identité est traité avec beaucoup de poésie. C'est un film qui donne à réfléchir. Je ne mets pas 5 étoiles car le rythme est un peu trop lent pour moi.

  10. MirandaVj's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Me encanta, grandes reflexiones acompañadas de imágenes que se complementan estupendamente, muy sensible y muy necesaria en los tiempos que corren.

  11. Denis Sedgwick's rating of the film Letters to Max

    C'est bluffant et touchant. Un film qui m'a donné envie de passer mes vacances en Abkhazie.

  12. raggiodisole's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Epistolary beginnings maybe, but more of a plea for nationhood, with Q&A hosted by curious filmmaker. raises intriguing points and questions about what a country is though

  13. Olivier Serafinowicz's rating of the film Letters to Max

    EB continues his psycho-socio geography of places of war, this one less well-known than Beyrouth. Instructive without being didactic, though Max's self-assurance tends to show case itself.

  14. Ludovic72's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Un film atypique à propos d'un pays qui n'existe pas officiellement, c'est dépaysant...

  15. Philippe Dumez's rating of the film Letters to Max

    A la fin de son film, Eric Baudelaire explique : "Il y a quelques semaines, quand je postais une de mes lettres, un homme a aperçu l'adresse sur l'enveloppe. Je lui ai dit que j'envoyais une lettre en Abkhazie. Je voyais qu'il ne me croyait pas mais que l'histoire lui plaisait". C'est le parfait résumé de ce documentaire à mi-chemin entre la réalité et la fiction - au même titre que [sic], du même auteur.

  16. Shandy Casteel's rating of the film Letters to Max

    A filmic essay that succeeds but never attains some of the more resolute themes it's aiming for.

  17. Alex's rating of the film Letters to Max

    I really liked this one. What Grabbed me was the sincerity and sweetness of Max's responses and the camera work. Audio and Images never turned too borishly relatable, I was seduced by a certain mood created by the two put together. It was this mood that made it an ultimately pleasurable experince. I wich more films were made with such patience and authenticity. With all that said, this isn't a film for everyone.

  18. Jane de Deus's rating of the film Letters to Max

    A story comes from a perspective and this is one perspective presented thoughtfully and poetically.

  19. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Letters to Max

    Take note filmmakers. It turns out that the visuals don't have to exactly match what is being said, or even have the person talking directly into the camera. Lots of excellent choices made in this film. It's just that when you look into the ethnic cleansing of the Georgians and Max's attitude towards that, that the film is so much more about what wasn't said or asked. "Hey, Max. What about the genocide?"

  20. Rice Dream Girl's rating of the film Letters to Max

    A somber, fascinating film. To a large extent it is about Abkhazia, but Max delivers a very personal narrative of the "impossible" country's history. Eric's lingering camera offers a quiet, intimate portrait of decay that is not entirely without hope. These images are absolutely beautiful, and the two friends' correspondence poses important questions about how we understand our place in the world.

  21. Des Horne's rating of the film Letters to Max

    More of a paean to Abkhazia than an experiment in narrative.

  22. Ark V's rating of the film Letters to Max

    The most idyllic place you've never heard of.. Eric does the best he can from a lovely premise of a film, rewards are there, just a shame that Max is detached.
