Africa from a different angle...
10 July 2013 | by (Somewhere in the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

It is an art movie. Africa, the first thing pop out into our mind is jungles and wild animals. Whole story takes place in different remote areas of an African country, Cameroon. Where European doctors sent to treat the people who are suffering from sleeping sickness.

Lot like the story divides into two episodes, one was about the European doctors and their life style far from home and their relationship with family and people around them. The second one shows the beauty of the true Africas natural environment. There is a tiny twist at the end like a commercial movies. This movie is not for everyone but definitely feel good movie!
