Laurent Salgues shows us how a man's love for gold might induce him to be reduced to dust.
8 July 2009 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Dreams of dust is a wonderful film whose title has metaphoric richness. The title is apt as throughout the entire film we witness a ruthless, sensible struggle carried out by poor,hapless people in order to gain prosperity which would enable them to escape from the clutches of poverty.This film is set in Africa and makes a highly effective use of African landscape especially in the scenes where nature comes face to face with human beings.It is for this reasons that scenes involving dust and mines have been shot with great care,insight,maturity and wisdom.In his first film,French director Laurent Salgues has worked hard to give a heart and a soul to the image of Africa.The proof of his genius is evident in the manner he has highlighted the plight of poor African miners who are unable to possess gold for themselves even though there are numerous occasions when they get a chance to own the lucrative yellow metal.Africa has been shown in all its vivid details which enables viewers to establish a sensitive parallel between gold and dust.
