'Tula, The Revolt' is an international English spoken feature length movie about the leader of the big slave uprising on the island of Curacao, a Dutch colony in 1795. 'Tula The Revolt' tells the true story of a man who dared to stand up against his oppressors leading his people in a peaceful march for freedom, equality and brotherhood. An action movie, but at the same time a character movie, giving the audience the insights of a reluctant leader, his hopes, his fears, his values, his love, his faith, but also his inevitable destiny.Written by
Nothing makes any sense in this film: There is no coherent story, episodes stand on their own without being integrated in the greater plot. Characters are just one-dimensional, caricatures really. Tula, the illiterate slave, all of a sudden becomes some kind of Enlightenment philosopher. His "black" girlfriend does not look at all like any kind of Curacaoan. Whites are seen as bigoted racists, even sadists. Historical accuracy is totally disregarded for fantasy and not that subtle political comment on the present day. The actors, probably due to the awful script, cannot make any difference. Glover and Krabbe cannot be too happy about this film.
All in all, this may be the worst film I have seen in years, despite my interest in the island. But on Curacao is was a great success: The government assembly even voted to hand out free tickets to school children so they could be (mis-)informed about their own history.
