Critic Reviews for Karmen Geï (Karmen Gei)
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.
