  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Mimosas

    probably something mystic hiding behind the well shot scenes that do not seem to mesh together too well. I am a bit lost, I could swear a dead man is randomly alive in there.

  2. 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.

  3. Zachariah Rigby's rating of the film Mimosas

    Amazing visuals and soundtrack, but little underneath. Shakib ben Omar is magnetically compelling.

  4. keithinhull's rating of the film Mimosas

    A strange oil indeed but at times stunning to watch

  5. 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.

  6. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film Mimosas

    Beautiful stone-strewn mountains, green-blue meltwater rivers, inhospitable remote places. A simple story in essence but very well told. Took place in two worlds, most of it could be almost any century, but there were brief forays into the modern world as well. Almost worth five stars, but I struggled with the ending a bit.

  7. A.K's rating of the film Mimosas

  8. Juan Soto's rating of the film Mimosas

    The uncertainty of the landscape and the spirituality.

  9. matelot's rating of the film Mimosas

  10. 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.

  11. Freude's rating of the film Mimosas

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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 :
