  2. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    Very odd and offbeat tale about a little girl raised in a zoo by a giraffe expert. Yeah, it's just as odd as it sounds. The young girl grows up (a bit) and takes up with a strange Asian Cowboy Magician. She dresses up as an American Indian and they make an interesting (to say the least) pair. The story is told slowly (but steadily) and it's nothing major, but it sure is an interesting in its peculiarity.

  3. Corey's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    Loved this movie. It was strange, magical, perplexing, tragic, funny. Also - plenty of cute animals!!

  4. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    That jingle at the zoo. I'm not sure I've ever heard a more depressing tune.

  5. Sara Guedj's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    Quite beautiful and poetic. I guess the story is a metaphor of something, but I think I did not catch its meaning.

  6. Sachin Chavan's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    A novel attempt. Surreal feel. But at times enigmatic. Parallels between the zoo and massage parlour are well driven home. But the middle part, with the magician, is what I couldn't follow. Can anyone explain?

  8. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    It starts like a documentary with only animals and this little girl. Then it becomes something more like a tale with a strange magician. That's the middle part, the weakest. But in the end you see how human changed the world into what it is : violence, corruption, prostitution, even the zoo has lost its magical nature. Quite a strange object.

  9. Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    When the men at the "massage parlor" are being washed, pampered and treated mechanically and with condescendence by an expert handler, just like the animals in the zoo, I felt a sudden tenderness and compassion, like I almost wanted to pet them.

    Depressing Homeless Magical Realism Zoo Rub-and-Tug Life Journey In Pedal Boats: the movie.

  12. Larry Barnard's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    This movie is a delight, even more so than 'Blind Pig Who Wants To Fly'. The premise could have gone in so many different directions, but the one Edwin chose was perfect. Aspects of magic realism, though mainly it's a coming of age story. At times the cinematography is stunning, would love to see this on a big screen. 4.1

  13. Ludovic72's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    Le zoo de Jakarta est-il un lieu magique ? Pour l'héroïne qui y a grandi, à coup sûr. Dans une ambiance nonchalante et sur des images soignées, l'histoire décrit d'abord cette curieuse cohabitation de divers groupes animaux et humains, avec de beaux moments de grâce. Elle devient moins originale et intéressante quand Lana quitte le zoo avec "son" magicien. La girafe reste quand même un joli fil conducteur (3,5 / 5).

    Hypnotic! Edwin's magical realism is irresistible to endure.

    A delightful dreamlike experience!

  22. Spoiler's rating of the film Postcards from the Zoo

    Um limbo bizarro que não nos deixa escolha, se não submergir nessa viagem desmembrada através de uma narrativa e textura de sonho apedrejado em LSD. Pena que tudo seja tão complicado de entender, tão alucinado e confuso. Seria um lugar para sonhar? Claro, mas de uma maneira tão particular que ao público, o sonho seria mesmo fugir da sala de projeção
