Funny and touching.

"Kini and Adams" is a very human movie from African director Idrissa Ouedraogo. It tells the story of the two friends of the title and their dream of leave their small town and start a new life in the city with a old car they are repairing. It's a sad comedy, very funny at moments. The acting is wonderful and the beautiful African landscape is very well filmed, with a lot of color. The movie deals with the subject of how the poverty can affect the personal relationships, and the way the director handles it remind me the Charlie Chaplin movies, whose themes are similar in a certain way. It has been a surprise for me, the African cinema is absolutely unknown in occident, and movies like this prove that it deserves more attention.
