Did You Know?


The film was a passion project for Robin Wright who tried to get it made in 2004. She was the one who brought on Javier Bardem and Sean Penn in various roles. After funding fell through, Wright abandoned the project. Penn resurrected the film after he and Wright divorced, deciding to take on directing duties, and casting his then girlfriend Charlize Theron in the role Wright had wanted to play. See more »

Beautiful film; very good acting
16 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Penn shows African reality. This film has nothing to do with dominating or discriminating African people, but shows the insanity of all wars. I was moved, angered and surprised by the marvelous acting in this film. Charlize Theron as well as Javier Bardem play more than convincing. Furthermore I could not discover any weak-played other parts.The film really shows the difference in being in the field or being a manager far from where it all takes place. At the same it shows the despondency that falls on you not having a solution in our economics-based society. Who says Penn as a director failed in this film, should clean his glasses and keep on taking part in the Penn-bashing gild of right wing puppets
