A wonderful movie.
7 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was recently shown at the New York City Public Library's African Film Festival which must be commended for including this wonderful, entertaining movie in the program. The music is outstanding, almost nonstop, superimposed on a story that is contemporary and straight forward. This movie is proof that elaborate sets and locations are not necessary to produce a high quality cinematic movie. What makes this movie so great are the actors whose performances are uniformly excellent. Their singing and dancing is topnotch and matches anything produced by Hollywood. The story is a like a mini-road movie set in Senegal. The ensemble cast do a wonderful job and is proof that quality of the entertainment is not necessarily a function of the size of the budget. After watching this movie one will be impressed with the dancing and singing skills of the actors and the depth of their performances which cover a wide gamut of emotions. What a wonderful movie.
