Review this movie
75Structural shortcomings and all -- gives a neglected giant of African independence his due.
75Gives a white-knuckled, you-are-there account of a politician's dilemma, one whose repercussions are still felt in Africa.
75The film does succeed in making the story universal, giving us the drama as well as the history, the fire as well as cool examination. It's a movie that haunts you afterward.
