"The filmmakers proved a good deal of courage when they wanted to create the film to use Native American creation stories. And let’s be clear from the outset: with success. Four Souls of Coyote nails the viewer to their seat with elemental power. Finally a Hungarian film that is authentic from beginning to end."
"A fascinating and seductive journey into Native American cosmogony that more than echoes the great contemporary ecological concerns, the film is a total success accessible to all audiences, a mystical ode to nature that rightly reminds us that "man does not weave the web of life. He is only a strand of it."
”I am amazed with what I have seen, Stepping into the wonders of the tribal universe with the blending of the highest form of artistic storytelling, the Four Souls of Coyote is a gift to the wonders of humanity and the mystery of tribal people.”

The film warns that man is a fallible creature who has responsibility for the other creatures too. We cannot consume limitlessly; we must keep our desires in check because if we do not, then the created world will perish. The societal message and how the film makes the viewer aware of it are first class.
