  1. This leisurely, transfixing movie is much more interested in nostalgic atmosphere than "educational" facts.
  2. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Hauntingly beautiful documentary.

    Glacial in its pacing but beautifully, mournfully evocative of its subjects' ethnic/psychic exile.
  4. Reviewed by: Jeremy Mathews

    A lyrical poem to the lost places in our past and our heritage.
  5. 60
    A modernist travelogue, at once impressionistic and precise.
  6. As it observes these people, most of them well over 60, it conjures a melancholy definition of exile as a haunted state of mind.
  7. 40
    Too pretty to dismiss, but too dull to recommend.
