For true Africa lovers
31 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movie ever made on Africa. There is a lot of the personal experience of the author, but the subtle is elsewhere. On the first degree the viewer should just let himself dive into the African landscape. This is the true Africa. Nothing in common with the Hollywoodian and fake landscape of Blood Diamond. On the second degree the movie is mute. No strong sentence, scarce references (the scene on the structural adjustment defended by a IMF specialist) and as it seems very diluted story. I found the beauty of the movie to be at a higher level. This is a story about the root of misunderstanding between Europe and Africa. A European character become a 'real' African, a 'fou d'Afrique", completely misunderstood by a French of African ascent. The movie is about the culture clash which has nothing to do with the colour of the skin. You should look at the movie with this in mind. Absolutely brilliant!
