Movie Info

In a yurt on the snow-covered fields of the North, Nanook and Sedna live following the traditions of their ancestors. Alone in the wilderness, they look like the last people on Earth. Nanook and Sedna's traditional way of life starts changing -- slowly, but inevitably. Hunting becomes more and more difficult, the animals around them die from inexplicable deaths and the ice has been melting earlier every year. Chena, who visits them regularly, is their only connection to the outside world -- and to their daughter Ága, who has left the icy tundra a long time ago due to family feud. When Sedna's health deteriorates, Nanook decides to fulfill her wish. He embarks on a long journey in order to find Ága.

There is a balance of isolation and expanse in the film "Aga" that cannot be feigned, a sense of the enormity of existence measured against the fragile nature of single lives. The result is both wondrous and chilling.

You [get] such a sense of place here. It's a really striking film.

A small gem of focused filmmaking, "Ága" tells a minimal story so beautifully it holds us completely.

[The final stretch] shifts this textbook exercise in art cinema... into kitsch.

There are enough moments of beauty, charm and dry humor along the way to maintain engagement and interest.

The screenplay's simplicity is enriched by memorable images whose stillness adds to the overall aura of a period coming to an end.
