Very nice African movie everyone should see !
16 November 2006 | by adebaenstSee all my reviews

I went last night in Brussels to watch a pre-screening of this film. I had a really good time. The basic plot or idea behind this film is a simple but great and effective one. The film is meant to get people to think about immigration and it's problems but is not at all done in a tragic way. Quite the contrary, the film is filled with nice humor and really got the audience to laugh out loud. This basic plot is a vision of a future (around 2040) where the African continent has united to form the "U.S of A" and is the most prosper continent on the planet. At the same time, Europe's economy has really fallen to the ground and most Europeans want to immigrate to Africa where living is easy... So the author takes the exact counterpoint of what is happening these days.

It makes for a very interesting film that makes you think and realize that humanity is much more important than nationality. Anyone who gets a chance to see this film really should. It is not a given as it's author explained last night all the difficulties he has trying to find distribution for it. Definitely not a "Hollywood typed" blockbuster but that is what makes a good deal of the appeal to the film as well.
