more about the film
3 September 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Bim was one of Trinidad and Tobago's first feature films. It was written to be a West Indian answer to the Godfather. The film takes place in the 1950's, just prior to Trinidad and Tobago's independence from England in 1962. The film follows the violent life of a young man named Bim, who's life experiences wind through petty crime all the way to political office. The film explores the political life of Trinidad and Tobago, including the development towards independence, the process of British de-colonization, relations between African and Indian descendants, and the rise of labor unions. The film is quite violent and brutal, but the depictions of such seem necessary to the plot. Initially, the film was banned in Trinidad and Tobago. It is an extremely rare film, but worth locating if possible.
