Audience Reviews for Waiting for Happiness (Heremakono)

½

This African film is boring by design, as it reflects a community trapped by borders both physical and psychological. Like the characters, it lacks a clear goal or much kineticism, but it is nonetheless a well-made depiction of human beings in stasis.

An interesting movie that centralizes on a small village where certain individuals are dealing with various emotions: loneliness, unhappiness, and the need to belong. A college student returns home, and feels like an outcast. A mother hopes that her only son will want to settle, and feel comfortable at home. A young boy seeks to learn the trade of his mentor. An individual missing the companionship of an old friend who left years before. Cast- Mohamed Mahmoud Ould Mohamed, Khatra Ould Abdel Kader, Maata Ould Mohamed Abeid, and Nana Diakité. Worthy!
