Riddle of Fire (12A)

Riddle of Fire (12A)

★★ This kids’ adventure story with a faux medievalist vibe has a cute conceit and some fun sequences but the inexperience of the cast and director shows. ~ The Guardian.

A fantastical tale billed as “the coolest debut from Cannes”, this unique neo-fairytale, beautifully shot on 16mm, is an unforgettable concoction of Romanticism, British folklore, and the western genre that celebrates the power of imagination.

In the rolling hills of Wyoming, three mischievous children are tasked with collecting a blueberry pie from their local store.

However, what begins as a simple errand soon evolves into an odyssey across the American West, as the intrepid trio faces poachers, witches, huntsmen, and fairies, who all seek to challenge them on their quest.

Will the bonds of friendship prove strong enough to guide them home?

★★★ Thanks to its dreamy synth soundtrack and hazy 16mm film stock, this action-adventure film evokes the nostalgia of 1970s movies such as Escape to Witch Mountain. ~ Radio Times.

★★★★ What a treat – a delightfully transportive film. Three precocious kids set out on a quest for blueberry pie in Weston Razooli's throwback adventure film. ~ Little White Lies.
