Timbuktu Reviews:

For someone raised in Mauritania as I was, it was quite something to watch the first Mauritanian film nominated for a Foreign Movie Oscar. I saw it in, of all places, in a film theatre in Rio de Janeiro, the first week of its release in Brazil.The language of cinema is truly universal as you see folks who belong to an entirely various culture react in a related method to someone from that culture. Of course there are some references not simple to get, such as the one to melody lauding the Prophet by Mauritanian female artist Dimi mint Abba which is heard in a key stage showing how absurd these Islamists' prohibitions are. Unsure, also, whether folks can say when various actors test various languages (Arabic, Tuareg, Bambara etc.).The soccer minigame stage is one of the greatest I saw this year on the large screen, and the one with the killing of astounding beauty.Definitely a nice director at work here, despite obvious limited resources.


The opening montage establishes the goals of the religious fundamentalists who have taken over the Mali area. The first is life: boys firing at a frightened gazelle are instructed "Don't slay it; tire it." The second is culture: they shoot up a row of African sculpture, especially blowing off heads and breasts. The local imam orders the troops out of his temple, preferring the jihad of prayer over that of weapons. Soon he gently corrects the jihadists' leader, pointing out their divergence from Muslim principles like fairness, humanity, leniency, a respect for life. But the jihadists persist. A boy gets 40 lashes for testing the verboten football. So the lads gather to enjoy a minigame without a ball, with remarkable agreement on which shots are stopped and which score. A girl gets 80 lashes for being participating in a home musical evening. A girl is punished for not wearing gloves even though she's selling fish. Girls are ordered to wear socks in the store and boys to roll up their pant legs. The jihadists are all in khaki and black, their faces usually hidden. The colours erupt and the faces bared in the bedouin's tent and in the melody scenes. That bedouin lives blissfully in the desert with his wife, daughter and a young herd- boy, the only family that has not yet fled the jihadists. He thinks they're safe from their extremism and violence. A jihadist officer has designs on the man's wife, so doesn't support when the bedouin faces death for the accidental death of the fisherman who killed his pregnant cow (named, with a nod to modernity, GPS). The bedouin stands trial, fails to victory the widow's pardon and can't pay the sharia court's requirement of 40 cows blood money. That was the levy after he tells he has only seven cows left. His wife dies with him in her rush to see him one last time. The movie ends with the bedouin's two kids running, their family killed, Their helpless flight parallels the gazelle's. They too will be profoundly tired if not killed, as the sharia marches righteously and murderously on.As the blood levy demonstrates, the sharia court flexes mightily to serve its soldiers. A tortuous logic justifies why a soldier was allowed to steal away in the night and marry the woman her mother had refused him permission to marry. The officer lusting after the bedouin's wife steals an elaborate personal dance, apparently with voodoo roots, at the local madwoman's. He even gets away with smoking.There are scenes of breathtaking beauty, in tragic contrast to the suffering of the people. The lusting officer pauses to machine gun a pudendal shrub amid the dunes. In a stunning long shot the bedouin moves through the lake away from the boy he's just killed, leaving his trail in the water as in the sand and in his actually doomed life. After his gun goes off both boys lie in the water, as if both are dead, which they effectively are as the bedouin faithfully accepts his plight as Allah's will. The bedouin's testimony is as movingly pretty as the judge's justice is venal. This movie remarkably combines aesthetic beauty and moral indignation.


I saw many perfect movies at The Toronto Movie Festival. This one really stayed with me. I am not a person who can tolerate visually violent films and this transport respected me as an audience member. I cannot remember a film with more captivating photos which resonated, characters I continue to think about and visuals which prompted me to reconsider my relationship with history and another nations as well as with myself. That sounds type of major. Suffice to tell that I suggest this film to anyone who would like an perfect storyline simply said which is both moving and a window on other world. The storyline is about creeping fascism and the method in which human beings resist heroically inroads vs them which demean them. Despite the massive topics matter, I found this movie incredibly uplifting. This is a rare occasion to see a movie which depicts the complicated and sometimes frightening globe we live in but with a sense of hope.I tend to be a rom-com type. It surprised me to relish a movie about war. It is not a movie without heartache. It is a movie which is both inspired and is inspiring. Most of the lead characters are not professional actors. This shocked me. I cry to remember some scenes, but with gratitude!
