    ★★★★

    lots to unpack here: very atmospheric photography and lighting, two of the best elements of the film together with the sound design, definitely, if you can, see the movie on the big screen.
    I found the three interweaving stories fascinating, but the one about the Filipino worker felt a bit forced, or at least underdeveloped. In my opinion the movie could have worked even had the main storyline, the one with Baishō Chieko, been the only one.
    Anyway, the themes…

    ★★★

    The plot is thin and predictable (Indy Jones-like) but the spirit is very faithful to the original series, and surprisingly the CG works well, besides some stiffness in some of the characters. The gags, the funny parts, and the characterization (especially Letitia) were the highlights for me. The music and the action scenes were also positive. A decent film and a fun ride, particularly if you’re a fan.

    In just 22 minutes this film says more about contemporary Afghanistan than 10 newspaper articles about the subject.
