“Gianfranco Rosi’s beautiful, mysterious and moving film is a documentary that looks like a neorealist classic. It is a portrait of Lampedusa, the Sicilian island where desperate migrants from Africa and the Middle East arrive each year hoping for a new life in Europe: 400,000 in the last 20 years.
The film does not take a view; it does not demand action. It simply shows us the details, and I felt I learned more from this film than from the nightly TV news. Fire at Sea is masterly film-making”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
