from Africa with love
3 October 2010 | by natalabalaSee all my reviews

beautiful imagines, interesting interviews, real Africa with its real modern problems. The beginning of the movie can be heartbreaking but the movie offers hope for future and some of the solutions for the problems Malawi is facing. It will also encourage you to question your own life and the meaning of the happiness in our society. This movie helped me to discover Malawi on the map and I will always remember the faces on those kids. Celebrities like Madonna can and should use their popularity among young people to talk about issues we normally rather not to talk about.
