After squandering his grant money, despondent and recently widowed anthropologist James Krippendorf must produce hard evidence of the existence of a heretofore undiscovered New Guinea tribe.

But when a spiteful rival threatens to blow the whistle on Krippendorf's ruse, he gets into the act as well.

Krippendorf's Tribe torrent reviews
(mx) wrote: Enjoyable kid's film finds an orphan with a nasty foster family on the run with his sometimes invisible dragon. No one believes him despite the small destruction everywhere, but it blends a myriad of songs and cool invisible effects with silly villains and all sorts of fun characters. Its a bit overlong but good for kids.

Benji is an Adam Levine lookalike (not interested!) while transexual Lilly and straight girl Penny bring some balance as well as touching and LOL moments :) Nice terms : Straightdar - hahaah! And Peter just seems better with Casey..!

(nl) wrote: Controversial, provocative and potent examination of female adolescence. Both unforgettable and unforgiveable -- Breillat seems to be turning the film against you at every turn. A brilliant bit of cinematic art. Not for all tastes.

(it) wrote: Good family film with good storyline, form, and morals. Excellent character development for almost all the main actors. A little Disney-like at the final chess scene with Joshua winning (i.e., where Joshua was recalling one of Bobby Fischer's move sequences that Bruce taught him). Form: +3; Morals: +2.5.

The film is a biography and partial documentary of Jacques Demy's childhood in 30's and 40's France and his growing interests in becoming a film director.Some problems in pacing and editing perhaps detracted from the film but nonetheless the story was quite engaging. Although the editing did become a bit redundant, it was interesting to see many of the juxtapositions of specific childhood memories and how these memories were shown in his later works including "Lola" and "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg." I also liked the main storyline with Jacque's budding interests in film starting with his first animated films and his first experiences with shooting with a motion picture camera while growing up in Nantes.
