Elizabeth Kerr Hollywood Reporter A meandering, cryptic drama about fear, demonization of the other, insular protectionism and acceptance, the movie has bitten off a bit more than it can reasonably chew - but it's not for lack of trying. Oct 7, 2019 Full Review Pieter-Jan Van Haecke Psychocinematography What makes Zeze's The Promised Land so pleasing is not so much its composition but its choice to let important questions that propel the narrative forward unanswered. Jul 26, 2021 Full Review Mark Schilling Japan Times The Promised Land celebrates the natural beauty of its setting, with sweeping drone shots of radiant fields, and even holds out hope, though it comes too late for some.
