Sleepwalking Land2007

  • 3.8
In the midst of Mozambique's devastating civil war, Muidinga, an orphaned refugee, wanders the countryside in search of his mother. His only companion is an elderly storyteller and the only guide to finding his mother is a dead man's diary. Together, the storyteller and diary lead him on a magical (and sometimes macabre) journey across war-torn landscapes to find the family he lost. Based on Mia Coutou's acclaimed Portuguese novel of the same name, Teresa Prata's transporting drama underscores the power of imagination in surviving, and ultimately overcoming, the catastrophe of war.

This is a lovely film, about a boy and a man wandering through a war-ravaged countryside, sustained by stories and the journey to find the boy's mother. Very impressive!

I enjoyed this film from a standpoint of experiencing a world, a way of life, and an experience which I found heartbreaking at times. However, I felt something was missing from the overall storyboard, my expectations were not realized, aside from the aforementioned.
