    Using a simple storytelling style that grows stronger with each passing scene, Dry Season draws the viewer into its small two-character drama set in post-war Chad, while it offers a deep reflection on injustice and frustrated revenge.
  2. The film has the feel of a gift. Particularly noteworthy are Mr. Haroun's eloquent silences, visual and aural.

    African director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's austere, hypnotic third feature explores the legacy of Chad's decades-long civil war.
  4. Though the progress of Atim's increasing empathy is predictable, the film understates its points effectively, without simplification.
