Critic Reviews for Karmen Ge´ (Karmen Gei)
The film becomes an overwhelming pleasure, and you find yourself rooting for Gai's character to avoid the fate that has befallen every other Carmen before her.
[Gai] comes closer to any actress I can remember to personifying independence in its purest and, yes, most intimidating form.
Ultimately betrayed by a script, whose initially ambiguous charm gives way to disorder and confusion.
Beautifully reclaiming the story of Carmen and recreating it an in an African idiom.
A vibrant, colorful, semimusical rendition.
A worthy addition to the cinematic canon, which, at last count, numbered 52 different versions.
