first hand material , but without an global view
9 January 2015 | by dannyalanshoreSee all my reviews

i like to see some real Chinese people who are working in Africa, how they do business with the local people. how the local people react to them(they don't feel being trusted). you can see all of this, with the chinglish throughout the film when the Chinese try to communicate with the local people and how the local people speaking their own language to gossip of their boss.

you can also see how China is engaged in all of this, there are president of Zambia and Minister of Commerce of China showing up.

but this film is confined to one country(Zambia) and two people only, one Chinese Farmer and one Chinese project manager, really can't call it when China meet Africa, for this i don't think it is a great film.
