Not a political film, but without emphasis yo can feel the absurd new ways on a traditional moslm town. Sissako 'commits' too poetic scenes as the football match without a ball, but I tolerate them.

Description: Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya, and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd.

“To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it had won the César of the Best French movie of the year, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be a rather heartbreaking tale about how the life in Timbuktu  has been completely shattered by the local jihadists. While watching this movie, I actually came to the conclusion that the guys from IS are pretty much the fascists of our time. Indeed, for some reasons, they think they are better than everyone else and they cripple the liberty of others by forcing women to cover their heads, to wear some gloves and forbidding cigarettes, music and even football. You might wonder why the Western leaders don't try to stop them like they did with the Nazis during WWII. I guess, they just don't care much for suc” read more

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

" 6.21 The joyous dreams of a quiet family of cattle raisers in Mali end in tragedy after the patriarch accidentally kills a fisherman and have to face strict Muslim justice. Watching Timbuktu is like watching a Spike Lee joint with the desert replacing the ghetto."
