Most of you have never been to Africa, and for that reason alone, you should see this film. It will show you that the real Africa does not look a bit like the one in "Abbott and Costello Lost in the Jungle". In a way, it shows the real Africa the way Qiu Ju shows the real China. Having said that, I caution you not to choose this if you want vanilla movie fare. Save this for one of those times you are prepared to watch a film that unfolds in front you a life of very real and ordinary people a world away from you.
