Shakespeare in Africa.
26 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Sissoko originally had trouble with making this film in Mali because the Government thought the topic was too anti-political. With some fast talking Sissoko told them the movie is set in the past and has no association with the present. The pollies brought it and Sissoko was allowed to make a fable about a nasty village leader and his spoiled son. A village girl promised from birth to wed the son refuses him and the village leader as well. This sets the motion for a Shakespeare in Africa tale, full of witchcraft and women with large rumps.
