  • An intimate parable of truth and reconciliation.

  • Gently and quietly told, Daratt (Dry Season) is an unassumingly political work that unfolds with the simplicity of a parable and the gravity of a Bible story.

    April 6, 2007 | Rating: 4/5
  • Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's austere, hypnotic third feature explores the legacy of Chad's decades-long civil war.

    April 3, 2007
  • Deceptively simple, both in its storytelling and use of images, it's convincing as an allegory of truth and reconciliation in Chad and beyond.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • Using a simple storytelling style that grows stronger with each passing scene, Dry Season draws the viewer into its small two-character drama set in post-war Chad, while it offers a deep reflection on injustice and frustrated revenge.

Audience Reviews for Dry Season (Daratt)

  • Nov 12, 2013
    After a 40 year civil war the government anounces that all war criminals are amnestied. Atim receives orders from his grandfather to kill Nassara, the murderer of his father, a man who now owns a bakery. Atim offers his services to him and Nassara hires him, not knowing that he killed his dad in the civil war. Slowly a dad-son relationship develops between Atim and Nassara. Atim struggles with his conscious and finds it hard to carry out the orders of his grandfather. The movie focuses on the inner thoughts of the main characters and in doing so shows the consequences of a civil war. Not much happens but stil there always is a high tension as U can feel Atim doubting when to kill Nassara. Brilliant Afican movie from Mahamet-Saleh Haroun, a director from Chad!
