The First Movie

The critical consensus

A thoughtful documentary showing a side of a country we only usually see through a blood-smeared lens. Small, but humanising.

***(*)(*)Nev Pierce, Empire Online

It would be more touching without Cousins’ commentary.

It is heart-on-sleeve stuff and I found his idealism inspiring.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 30/09/2010

A memorable and heart-rending documentary.

****(*)Marc Lee, The Telegraph, 30/09/2010

(The) film is beautifully shot, the films exhibited alfresco to an enchanted local audience are well chosen, and the kids' own pictures are revealing.

Philip French, The Observer, 03/10/2010
