The film's themes are disappointingly vague and unspecific, built around a fictitious African country that stands for anywhere -- and consequently nowhere.
The fictitious African country doesn't stand for anywhere. If you did your research about African politics, you would know that is is clearly based on Zimbabwe. I'm actually not surprised about the reaction from American critics. What do you know about the rest of the world anyways? for those of us familiar with Southern Africa and its politics, this movie hit home. This movie is well respected in the circles familiar with the subject matter.
