Despite its "postcolonial" reputation, this film does not allow a single African--especially the most important character--to have a single important speech. The rebel soldiers function mainly as zombies breaking down plantation doors to kill people.
All of these elements contribute to a certain feel and mood in the film; they give it a pure, physical, bodily quality. Denis never films in front of a place; she films inside it... the land is the source for everything.
