Movie Info

OKA! is a fish-out-of-water tale of a ethnomusicologist from New Jersey who finds himself immersed in the colorful lives of the Bayake pygmies. Based on the memoir by ethnomusicologist Louis Sarno, who has lived with the pygmies for over 20 years, OKA! transports audiences to the vast forest of the Central African Republic into the magical world of the Bayaka and lyrically captures their music, dance, humor and exuberance, as well as the harsh realities they endure. -- (C) DADA Films

It's a pleasant, if slow-moving, trip down a lazy river.

The plot is somewhat pedestrian and the dialogue needs more zip.

What's refreshing about Oka! is its aversion to any kind of cliches.

If only for its portrait of a land and a fascinating culture, "Oka!" is worth the journey.
