One of 3 African movies I've seen...
19 October 2000 | by (The Orchestra) – See all my reviews

20 minutes long. Black and white. Focusing on one cart driver. Sounds pretty c**p, huh? Wrong! The film makes excellent satirical points on the class divide, as well as providing some excellent, if somewhat crude, camera work. However, it's depth puts many movies to shame.
