when I grow up, I am making films for his memory... having met him, I am certain of my story...

Interesting, but a little too interesting for me.

Pretty great, actually. I'm not sure I'd have liked it as much without the discussion afterward, but its greatness is sinking in.

Great film, what the New Wave would have been if anybody but Varda (and occassionally Godard) had anything to say. Much better and intense than most films you will find.

only 4% of users want to see a quinessential and important film about the effects of african colonialism? well, people like transformers too but hey, they are morons. ANYWAY, i was suprised at the relative fast pace of the film and though the ending is a bit confusing, it does make a strong pro-africa statement. a good primer for those who are interested in the riverwood movement.

Un film africain que personne ne verra. C'est dommage. C'est du Godard a Dakar.

This 1973 film from Senegal is a tribute to the anit-colonialism and the strive for independence in Africa. An interesting and worthwhile watch.

a challenging, but rewarding african film. mabety touches on a lot of things i think about when contemplating american society, and clearly he feels the same about the bourgieouse and our races fundamental needs to strike a dicshord with the harmony of our home planet.

I think it is difficult for many to see this film and not make a great deal of comparisons to other films with big budgets etc...Plus there are so many allegories to African rituals and life that if you are not clued in on these details, one might not get the underlying themes that run through this film... I love this movie because I really herald it as one of the most interesting and unusual films produced by an African fillmmaker...

All directors copy styles as they learn their craft. Here, Mambety mimics the style of French new wave auteur, Jean-Luc Godard. It's a decent enough film. Nothing groundbreaking or terribly exciting but interesting even if only because it's a Senagalese film from the 70's

this is one of the greatest pictures of all time

A load of steaming crap! Mambety was heralded for making a fantastic film, but to be perfectly honest he merely copied French and Italian styles and I was forced to sit through this nonsense!
