  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Moana: A Story of the South Seas

    Un incontournable classique du film documentaire qui reste un fascinant témoignage d'une époque et d'une culture fort lointaines aux ancestrales traditions grandement effacées par le temps qui passe et les bienfaits néfastes de la modernité... www.cinefiches.com

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Moana: A Story of the South Seas

    Un filme valioso por su sentido etnológico. Flaherty parece repetir el plato de "Nanook el esquimal", registra las costumbres y rutinas de una comunidad.

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Moana: A Story of the South Seas

  4. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Moana: A Story of the South Seas

    Seen on the same evening as Dovzhenko's IVAN. One is in praise of brutish, insane people and their god, Progress; the other in praise of people whom civilization has not yet deranged as they go about their beautiful tasks. People who wear flowers in their hair, whom the Russians' fever of energy would only terrify, and rightly so. Know the conclusion of Ode on a Grecian Urn? I'm with Keats.
