Critic Reviews for The Ambassador
At film's end, you'll probably feel like having a long, hot shower, metaphoric or otherwise, to wash away the mire Brügger has presented.
[Brugger] returns with a jaw-dropping exposé of postcolonial corruption; he's lucky he returned with his head.
You can imagine how this could have become a 1950s British comedy. It is all real.
'The Ambassador" is a sociopolitical prankumentary in which the prank blows up in the filmmaker's face, exploding-cigar style.
The picture sometimes seems to have been assembled rather than creatively edited.
Audience Reviews for The Ambassador
Mads is completely lunicidal! Some of the politics are pretty tough to follow, but the absurdity of it all, the corruptness throughout the stricken African landscape, the meddling of the Chinese, the tensions are pretty real. A good watch, to really put a face to African politics - or the lack thereof. The stuff with the head of Security had my heart beating. That dude has seen some stuff.
