Sembčne, with a tense restraint, evokes a dependent country that maintains its dignity through nationalist pomp and local pride, and portrays one long-suffering family that bears Senegal's burdens in microcosm.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The renowned Senegalese filmmaker Ousmane Sembene reconfirms his stature both as a master storyteller and a distinctively humanitarian artist.

Through Sembčne's wry attention to detail, we observe a great many things about village life that would otherwise pass unnoticed.

Sembene is hardly a didactic director and in fact invests his characters with such complexities that they are sometimes compromised.

Alternately wise and very funny in its treatment of tribalism and in its grasp of neocolonial corruption.

A rich, vivid and universal portrait of a community that is revealed fully as it reacts to a crisis: a community that will be buried by the past if it cannot look to the future. There's a lesson here, and Mr. Sembene presents it with grace and ease.
