I found Oka! to be an interesting and entertaining movie. The story is compelling and I felt constantly challenged to confront the western culture in which I live with this foreign ancient rainforest tradition that has survived against the enormous pressure of the outside world. Although it's true that it doesn't have very much depth as far as the work of Louis Sarno is concerned and the plot develops very much in the vein of a commercial movie, I still found this picture to be quite honest, beautiful and unique. I think it is a nice introduction to the life of the Bayaka pygmies and the curious life of Louis Sarno. For me it was an interesting blend of documentary and fiction. Loved it.
