Terrifying at times, amazing visuals, yet leaves me hoping for more in some aspects
22 December 2020 | by joaopaulosalvadorSee all my reviews

A good story where the horrors of Portuguese colonialism are put forward a few times. The base for an incredible movie was there but I felt like I needed more story. More to draw me into Zacaria's mind and more to show me, the viewer, and perhaps the forgetful Portuguese people the truth behind the fairytale like colonialism they learn about in school. I get we don't see a lot of it, since we're going along with Zakaria's journey, but I think small "detours" would be welcomed, so the movie taught us more about what we're watching. A good representation, also, of the meaninglessness of the European wars in Africa and their stupid consequences. The part that didn't fall short at all and the first reason that drew me to watch the movie were the visuals, amazing.
