    Wildly entertaining and a visual delight.
  3. 80
    In every way a sunny film. Supremely affirmative, it ends with the funniest, sexiest close-up of the year.
  4. 80
    Sembène is a far more adroit and elegant storyteller than many may be accustomed to seeing.
  5. Both politically intricate and genuinely hilarious, Faat-Kine is a story grounded in dichotomies.
  6. 75
    A youthful, and often funny, piece of filmmaking. You might never expect that its director is 73 years old.

    The situation is comic and yet quite serious, as are the ways in which language is used.
