Excellent and touching film
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Others have already summarized the story well, so I will just say that I have seen this film twice and am always struck by the really touching and realistic friendship between the little boy and this "old man" (as many in the film call him) who is a "griot" (storyteller and musician). Even though the ending is not really sad, I inevitably find myself crying by that time, and not that many films do that to me. The rapport between the two is just so great!

The other parts of the film dealing with the past and the legend of Sundiata are also quite well-done and gripping. You really get a sense of the movement of life in this area of Africa.

Definitely worth checking out!
