Storyline

Koni and Djimi, two childhood friends, flee their village after a tax collector's visit degenerates into a riot. They join the rebels in the bush, convinced that they can at last bring justice to their put-upon compatriots. In both the armed and ideological struggle, a gulf grows between the two friends. To bridge it, they must admit that the cure is often worse than the disease. Daresalam, the first Chadian feature film, is inspired by the story of Hissene Habre and Goukouni Weddeye, both past presidents of Chad. Written by Anonymous

Another movie about something -and it's not from Hollywood.
23 February 2003 | by billcodySee all my reviews

I am in love with world cinema! This African movie has it's flaws, but it's beautifully shot and it gave this viewer a much needed perspective from the African point of view. With a world that is rapidly becoming split between the US and everyone else - I need this perspective. And so does everyone else in this good ole US of A.
