  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    Absolutely appalling they way they treat horses. From plaything to meat.

  2. DannyVega's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    An interesting documentary. Many close ups of the horses. Felt intimate. The director used the juxtaposition of shots beautifully, particularly the pony struggling followed by a tower exhaling heavy, dark plums of smoke. 4/5 weenies.

  4. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    A little slow but very nice slice of reality.

  5. Selma Solberg's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    Je ne m'attarde pas sur le montage qui fait que le film peut sembler un peu long, il reste avant tout le documentaire de notre incurable tendance à rendre moche ce qui était beau.

  6. Bartłomiej Małczyński's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    Interesting and sad story about horses and theirs owners relationship.

  7. ADZERTY's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    Je n'ai rien trouvé d'absurde dans le fait de soigner ces chevaux irradiés pour les faire concourir : ils sont le symbole d'une société dont les valeurs ancestrales survivent et se perpétuent malgré l'apocalypse, le symbole que la vie doit continuer malgré tout (the show must go on). Ce qui est absurde, je veux dire : innommable, c'est la catastrophe nucléaire elle-même.

  8. David R Williams's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    The opening shots are beautiful but after the first half hour what follows becomes nothing more than tedious. Interesting but not 74 minutes interesting.

  9. Beatrice's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    A good and honest documentary about horses and men. A legacy of pride, beauty and sometimes sheer brutality passed on through the centuries, from a silk print to the age of nuclear power plants. I think it made me actually see a horse for the first time.

  10. Marco Bevilacqua's rating of the film The Horses of Fukushima

    An example of a normal documentary (in technical terms) but with a deep, interesting and unfamiliar story. All documentaries should be like this: a keen eye for small, unnoticed problems. The recording structure of this movie aims to touch the viewer emotionally. Although some of the recordings are not clear to understand, and less powerful than others.
