Features not one word of comment from its subject, but it does offer plenty of musical numbers and an impressionistic portrait of his life and times.
Enjoyable if only to hear KarKar perform his mournful and personal songs, including a tender tribute to his late wife.
Jacques Sarasin's documentary blends the history of post-colonial Mali with the life of one of its most popular musicians, the guitarist and singer Boubacar KarKar Traor.
A musical biopic conceived as a lyric dreamscape, as a meditation on fate and faith.
One of those sanctifying docs that rambles when it should explore.
The reverent pacing lags a bit, but the film's meditation on the struggle to find spirituality that reconciles Islam with tribal belief systems is powerful in its understatement.
A gentle portrait of a musician whose music provides a bridge from Africa to America.
Though Traoré never talks directly on camera, he speaks volumes through numerous bluesy tunes he performs for the film.
KarKar's performance is intimate, the film is not.
This graceful portrait of the great Malian singer and guitarist Boubacar Traore is also as a fascinating snapshot of Mali in the decades following the west African nation's independence from France in 1960.
The final product feels frustratingly incomplete.
Meandering and disappointing.
