Critic Reviews for Félicité
The meandering narrative has a lyrical quality consistent with the many musical numbers.
Think High Noon set in Kinshasa and backed by a Congolese beat.
Beya ... arrives fully formed here as a figure of enormous dignity and warmth, a pillar of resilience who is nonetheless all-too-humanly susceptible to exhaustion, grief and despair.
Félicité has a lyrical spirit that worms its way to the surface even at its most directionless.
Mr. Gomis's cinematic style is spectacularly multifaceted. The camerawork and cutting often have the fleetness of a documentary, but there's nothing sloppy about them.
