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.

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.

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.
