Film School Rejects

Ultimately too spare to completely satisfy, the pronounced feeling coming out of this film is that it needs more dancing.

The movie loses its way with too much plot (including an unconvincing love story), weak dialogue, amateurish acting, and a frustratingly recessive main character.

[Features] a thin, undernourished script, mountains of clichés, pale local colour and indifferent performances.

Grigris measures out its story in spacious doses, hoping to build into something of a morality tale, but there is little learned except that entering a criminal enterprise and trying to outsmart the criminals, probably isn't a great idea.

This is a minor work set alongside something like Our Father, but the director's compassion shines out, and so does the charisma of Souleymane Deme.

HeyUGuys

For the second consecutive time in a row, Haroun's entry point into the film is that of an elusive, timorous character - making for a fascinating way to peer into a world we already know little about.

This elegant, geographically vivid pic is considerably leaner than its melodramatic premise might suggest.

[An] uplifting underdog story, complete with dance numbers and a sweet romantic subplot.

Even if the plotting is a trifle trite, that doesn't mean that Haroun can't find ways to surprise.

Distills a vast swath of history and experience in the travails of one striving man.

In a crowd-pleasing way plays out as an uplifting story of an underdog overcoming his rotten fate.

Haroun previously won the Jury Prize in Cannes for his 2010 drama A Screaming Man, and this low-key crime story unfolds with the same kind of thoughtful, resigned fatalism.

Démé deserves to be showcased like Keaton or Kelly
