A bouncy crossbreed of Slumdog Millionaire, Enid Blyton and a Unicef commercial; a film that so dearly wants to be adored and adopted that it seems positively churlish to shoo it away.
The makers do their best to paper over an undemanding script with bouncy music, quick cuts and musical montages, and you have to admire the young actors' spirited acting and the film's willingness to place HIV in the foreground.
Road movie, adventure, comedy drama, a will-they-make-it ... no matter what label you give it, Africa United is a unique piece of filmmaking, full of the joys and wounds of Africa
Like its infectious music and indelible African landscape, the sheer enthusiasm of this upbeat film championing friendship and dreams instantly rubs off
An earnest, treacly tale of youthful trio's long trek through Africa.
It goes without saying that the precocious charm of an impoverished Rwandan kid improvising a football out of a condom, some string and a plastic bag is undeniable.
It appears to have been put together by social workers eager to bombard children with Aids awareness and the importance of condoms.
Has enough charm, colour and humour to win us over by extra time.
A cheery, rough-around-the-edges family film about three Rwandan children who travel overland from Rwanda to the 2010 World Cup in Johannesburg.
Director Debs Gardner-Paterson gets disarming performances from her young leads and the soundtrack is terrific.
It may be formulaic and linear, it may flinch by too readily blending into fable, but it doesn't hide from the realities. It just refuses to bow to them.
Africa United is never less than jaunty, the locations are suitably vivid, and the intention to make a film about the "real" Africa that's not all doom and gloom can't be faulted.
An absolutely outstandimg family film for the family!
