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.

A good movie

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.

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. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the jihadists determined to enforce their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences.

“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.

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."
