Critic Reviews for Africa Addio (Adios Africa) (Africa Blood and Guts)
Africa Addio is a brutal, dishonest, racist film. It slanders a continent and at the same time diminishes the human spirit. And it does so to entertain us.
Audience Reviews for Africa Addio (Adios Africa) (Africa Blood and Guts)
The makers of MONDO CANE spend three years in Africa documenting the transition from colonialism to self rule, capturing massacres of both wildlife and humans. This is a difficult movie to watch, and to evaluate. On the one hand, there are the allegations that some scenes are staged, other scenes (such as the drawn-out killing of an elephant with spears) are needlessly exploitative and tasteless, and the entire tenor of the film seems skewed towards contrasting European civilization with the savagery of the native African. On the other hand, the directors unearthed an amazing amount of historically important footage of massacres and crimes against humanity that were going on in Kenya, Rawanda and other places in post-colonial Africa, which progressive Europeans of the time did not want to admit or see. A troubling film all around.
