Critic Reviews for An African Election

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11)

  • As we join throngs of excited citizens at a public vote-counting, their uninhibited zeal for the process only highlights the jaded cynicism that threatens to overwhelm our own.

    November 29, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • What makes the film especially resonate now is the frustration with the status quo that is consistently voiced by the people on the street.

  • The tone is a tad condescending but it's fascinating to learn about the country's colonial past.

    November 25, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Paints a portrait of an engaged, energised electorate, thronging the rallies and queuing for 12 hours straight at the polling stations. It's a good foundation; something to build on.

  • Timely and balanced, this is a great insight into an otherwise closed process, but would it be more at home on TV?

  • Occasionally lacking in context but never less than intriguing, Jarreth Merz's polished film is a handy document to a rarely visited democracy.

  • Director Merz spent his childhood in Ghana, and An African Election feels like a personal love letter to his country, warts and all.

    December 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Both topical and apposite, with Merz giving all sides an opportunity.
