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

It's doubtful he set out to helm a demo reel for why local movie houses need to stay open, but it sure is a pleasant added bonus.

It is the singularly most informative film I can think of that came out this year. Ága is representative of the way we forget our own histories.

Milko Lazarov's Ága is a gorgeous rumination on a culture that's slowly fading into obsolescence.
April 9, 2018
Finessed performances, astonishing images, a concise script, and a well-handled sense of pace and mood all combine for a movie filled with its own considerable charms.

Ága is a subtle yet unmistakable reminder that there are thousands, even millions of stories in the world that have almost nothing to do with anything electronic.

This is a world rarely evoked in the cinema, and it's well worth a visit to the cinema to see Aga if only to experience the emotional conclusion of this beautiful, hypnotic film.

While much of the film quietly observes details in this white-on-white place, filmmaker Milko Lazarov gently allows a story to unfold in ways that almost silently convey the weight of the world. It's an transcendental movie that isn't easy to shake.

The slice of life story has the look and feel of a documentary work and, as it immersed me in Nanook and Sedna's daily struggle, I felt I was living it with them.

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.

Milko Lazarov seems driven to record the inner workings of a singular slice of Inuit culture before it goes the way of the reindeer.

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

[C]o-writer/director Milko Lazarov ... depicts the deep, almost unspoken bond between this couple with tender and acute perception.

February 26, 2018
An exquisitely shot and very moving film about an ageing couple who appear to exist alone on the edge of the world, stoically surviving on the icy tundra in a way of life that may be about to end.
