The best of fiction and non-fiction in one
28 January 2018 | by MargrietFSee all my reviews

Many of the characters in this film were people that Gabriel met on his real life journey. Recreating a dramatic story might have led to a film that glorifies 'the victim' or that leads to a flat depictions of characters and events. But, not in this one. Gabriel is complex character who can be selfish and selfless, naive and expert, conventional and unpredictable. It is not another 'Into the Wild', first of all, because it is set in Africa and addresses cultural differences and economic inequality. Furthermore, Gabriel does not break his social ties. Sharing experiences is important to him.
