Ten Canoes (2006)

Ten Canoes

Ten Canoes

A story within a story. In Australia’s Northern Territory, a man tells us one of the stories of his people and his land. It’s a story of an older man, Minygululu, who has three wives and realizes that his younger brother Dayindi may try to steal away the youngest wife. So, over a few days and several trips to hunt and gather, Minygululu tells Dayindi a story set in the time of their ancestors when a stranger came to the village and disrupted the lives of a serious man named Ridjimiraril, his three wives, and his younger brother Yeeralparil who had no wife and liked to visit his youngest sister-in-law. Through stories, can values be taught and balance achieved?

    I love this blog man… it’s really awesome… i think “Derzu Uzala” (Akira Kurosawa) would be great for this blog… “Genesis” too(where Salif Keita participates), anyway, there’re a lot of films that would be great to see here, just a comment… i really liked “Ten Canoes”, i love the cinema where no professional actors starring, like “La Vendedora de Rosas” from Colombia and “No Quarto Da Vanda” from portugal… have you ever seen it?
    Sorry for my bad english, i´m from México… greetings

    Ok, will test it, but I’m focused now more on documentaries, presentations and interviews, as you can see.
