Sinopsis

Una mujer, ahora rica, regresa a su pobre ciudad natal para proponerle un trato al pueblo: entregará su fortuna a cambio de la muerte del hombre que, años atrás, le abandonó dejándola sola con su hijo.

Por qué verla

Visionary director Djibril Diop Mambéty (Touki Bouki) makes a feisty assault on economic imperialism in this loose adaptation of Friedrich Durrenmatt’s play, The Visit. Relocated to a Senegalese town, Hyenas is a comic, cutting critique of globalization conveyed with playful, imaginative flourish.

Reseñas críticas

Mambéty took on his ambitious mission in the style of African magic realism, transporting the story into an imaginary version of the very real Senegalese area of Colobane.

Mambéty never made another feature, although he did leave a 45-minute short meant to be part of a larger trilogy. A bold and splashy homage to Dakar’s street children, “The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun” (which can be streamed via Kanopy) is as affirmative as “Hyenas” is pessimistic.

The narrative moves at a different pace to European cinema, a languid, sun-beaten mood, with crisp, clear, bright visuals.
