African mythology mixed with modern symbolism
6 January 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Mythological tale based on an African story. When a village chief dies after a painful illness, his village is shrouded in a thick supernatural mist. It all seems to evaporate when his son accepts a quest to fulfill his destiny as the new chief. But after returning he's murdered by his best friend, because of his jealousy over having the woman he fell in love with. As a punishment the murderer must feel the disgrace of his deed by marrying the pregnant woman.

I like the way how this movie combines the atmosphere and ambiance of African mythology with thought provoking symbols from modern cinema. It's an age old story of almost biblical proportions; Cain and Abel and even Shakespeare's Mac Beth shining through it. The acting is not fantastic, but it is believable enough to pass as authentic.
