Movie Reviews

The story of grief and hope
Reader | Boca Raton, FL | 09/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been Film Movement's fan for a while and I must admit that their movies are getting better and better as the time goes by. This one is set in Africa and actors speak in French. While the language keeps movie flowing by its beauty, the visual scenes are breathaking. We learn about a small village which was a place of a gold rush 20 years ago. Now it is a place full of people who pay out their own pockets to do back breaking and dangerous jobs while being belittled by their superiors. Most settlers are men and a few women that are around are wives and daughters of the miners some living, some dead. They have no other means of living but dependign on the charity of the miners. As the film unfolds we see that most miners have troubled past. Some used to be rich when they struck gold many years ago; but thir extended families made sure that money is long gone. Others have lost their family to greed - the villagers would kill the family members of the miners who struck gold. It quickly becomes obvious that miners are there because they are either society rejects, or they are atoning for the bad luck they unwillingly brought to their families. All of them are damaged both emotionally and physically. Their lives are desolate like the mines they live in; their happiness is brought on only by drugs from the local plants and drink from the local bar. It is amazing to see them desparately search for their life's purpose under disguise of looking for gold. Their lives follow the shadows of their former selves. Beautiful film, emotional and touching at once."
BEAUTIUFL FILM!
