Even a tyrant can fall from grace
13 March 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie packages itself as a tale. It's the story of a small West African village ruled by a tyrant and his son. The movie starts and ends as a folk story told by a narrator. Myth and reality become one. And above all, there's a lesson to be learn. Not even a tyrant is free from justice. Sometimes, it comes later rather than sooner, but the results is the same. This film is a treat for the eyes. It's visually stunning. And the cast (of no professional background) is doing a fine job.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on March 13th, 2006.

81/100 (***)
