The film becomes an overwhelming pleasure, and you find yourself rooting for Gai's character to avoid the fate that has befallen every other Carmen before her.
[Gai] comes closer to any actress I can remember to personifying independence in its purest and, yes, most intimidating form.
Ultimately betrayed by a script, whose initially ambiguous charm gives way to disorder and confusion.
Beautifully reclaiming the story of Carmen and recreating it an in an African idiom.
A vibrant, colorful, semimusical rendition.
A worthy addition to the cinematic canon, which, at last count, numbered 52 different versions.
Wobbly Senegalese updating of "Carmen" which is best for the stunning star turn by Djeinaba Diop Gai
Interesting and thoroughly unfaithful version of Carmen
Karmen moves like rhythm itself, her lips chanting to the beat, her long, braided hair doing little to wipe away the jeweled beads of sweat.
It's sexy, muscular and fast in a way that transcends logic to become something wondrous.
A violent initiation rite for the audience, as much as it is for Angelique, the [opening] dance guarantees Karmen's enthronement among the cinema's memorable women.
The production design, score and choreography are simply intoxicating.
