This film really flows!
5 May 2011 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

It sometimes surprises me how people see films so differently. I read here another review of Mama Africa and disagree with what it says about the film. I also find the the subject matter very interesting, but I also find the film is very well made, the story was exceptionally well told and constructed. Besides being so informative, it is also very entertaining and emotional. My only concern during the film was, that I hoped it would not end. I saw the film at the Berlin Film Festival in February and my impression was that most people in the audience felt like me. I did hardly know anything about Miriam Makeba before seeing the film, but it made me her fan, what amazing woman she was.
