Critic Reviews for Rafiki
For Kahiu, this sophomore feature should secure enough exposure to enable further, more ambitious vehicles for her direct, Afropop-infused style.
Muatsia, with her tough gaze and somber asides, maintains a credibility that rescues the movie from cliché. By telling an old story of impossible love, Rafiki renews its purpose.
While a number of technical and narrative faults let it down, Rafiki's fearless storytelling and its bold, vibrant heart ultimately delivers an enriching cinematic experience.
That Kenya is late to the women-coming-out film party is a function of its social and political structure; it doesn't lessen the courage and freshness of Kahui's filmmaking.
