FLEE

ColeSmithey.comAmin Nawabi's repressed story of a desperate refugee escaping from Afghanistan to Denmark falls into a droning miasma of darkness.

Danish documentarian Jonas Poher Rasmussen relies too heavily on Amin Nawabi's tonally flat narration.

This [mostly] animated film rarely comes up for some much needed air.

Tighter editing could have helped.

Not polished.

While visually inventive, "Flee" doesn't compare to such outstanding animated memoir films as "Persepolis" or "Waltz With Bashir."

Rated PG-13. 89 mins.

2 Stars
