Storyline

The TGV? No, it is not the famous French high-speed train, but instead the rickety and colourful bus operated, driven, repaired and, if need be, pushed by the intrepid "Rambo". This time, the trip between Dakar, the capital of Senegal, and Conakry, the capital of Guinea, is outright dangerous: the road crosses the territory of the Bijagos, who have launched an unexpected and violent insurrection. Rambo finds several odd passengers (with a handful of sheep) who are ready, for various legitimate or untold reasons, to take every risk to reach Conakry. And the TGV sets off on an eventful journey... Written by Eduardo Casais <casaise@acm.org>

Great Comedy with ba-a-a-a-d political satiric machinegunfire of scenarios
23 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Bus with mixed society of passengers travels across Africa. From a corrupt minister to a general of a rebel group, everything is represented in the bus. Having passed several obstacles along their way, they fall into the hands of the general's rebel group where the corrupt minister tries - what else - to sell the rest of the passengers to the rebels, hoping to escape. MUST have seen the rest of the story, but even the "known" (described) scenes are worth to see them in the movie :) Great French movie gang humour with even greater African gang humor, forms a good basis for a solid Afriollywood ...

(pity: id available at amazon for the double price of a normal DVD only, and almost never shows up in TV or movie theaters)
