Irati - 2023 SIFF Capsule Review

The Movie: Irati

The Director: Paul Urkijo Alijo

The Cast: Eneko Sagardoy, Edurne Azkarate, Itziar Ituño, Elena Uriz, Kepa Errasti

The Story: Follows Irati, a young girl who will guide a group of christian and muslim warriors through a journey in an ancient mythological world where everything that has a name exists, in an attempt to recover a lost treasure.

Capsule Review:
Paul Urkijo Alijo's latest effort, he was here at SIFF in 2018 with Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil, is finally here and I'm really loving his deep dives into sword and sorcery type story telling. Irati is a little less dark and a little more Game of Thrones but no less entertaining, especially when it comes to the elabroate special effects that will remind grnre fans of 80's classics like Excalibur or Highlander.
