Where did they find this reviewer?!
Boy, I hope this imdb reviewer has a day job. “Great filmaking” is much more than slick Hollywood effects or great use of light and shadow blah blah. In many cases, a film’s innocent and unsophisticated presentation can be the very thing that makes it good, though this film has alot more going for it than just that. Maybe the reviewer would have preferred Denzel as the father, but thought it was quite good as is.
I loved this film. It’s “up there” with Mahamet Salah’s ‘Haroun’ and ‘Daratt’. The acting is splendid. But reviewers seem to have missed the ambiguity in the film: the female primary-schoolteacher tries in the crudest and most paternalistic way to impart useless White Men’s ‘education’ to kids who are -of course – totally bemused. If this is what African education systems are like (based on medieval European monasteries), they need very seriously to be democratised and Africanised.
My sympathy lay with Solomon (the gorgeous Kang Quintus) rather than his aspirational daughter. He was beset by circumstances : the death of his wife, the bullying of his elder brother, and debts to a very nasty loan-shark – plus the pressure of the cane-carrying schoolteacher and her principal.
What this film showed to me was the inappropriateness and oppressiveness of western education (which, let’s face it, is a patristic , secular religion) in the African context. Being able to do mathematical tricks in a foreign language is no better than being a dolphin in a dolphinarium.
(It is worth pointing out that there are over 100 languages spoken in Cameroun, plus two European languages (at odds with each other because the British and French parts of Cameroun came together uneasily at independence), plus Kamtok, a hybrid language which is used a bit like Lingala in the two Congos.)
This film deals very well with a very complex post-colonial situation.
