This movie's themes and style are very interesting. The way the movie explores post-colonial Senegal and the legacy of imperialism was often very insightful. There were a lot of memorable shots and editing choices, especially a scene where the main characters appear to be in a parade. However, I thought some scenes went on a little too long, and I found the footage of cows being slaughtered unnecessary and disturbing.
