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.

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.
