One of the most exciting narrative features to come out of West Africa of late.

Fewer debuts have been as complete or compelling as Franco-Malian director Daouda Coulibaly’s. It’s a testament to his writing and directing that the stakes and betrayals register and resonate in an economical 95 minutes.

Scarface" is the genre gift that keeps on giving, even when set in Mali. Yet one of the strengths of “Wùlu” is that its French writer-director, Daouda Coulibaly, in a tense, tight feature debut, has made a familiar story singularly his own. And while much remains the same — the crime, the punishment and the intimations of incest — here, acts of individual wrongdoing tend to pale next to the wrongs of postcolonialism and organized terror.

  • kenji.kenja's rating of the film Wùlu

    Brilliant performance from Ibrahim Koma , expressing so much while saying so little. Great effort!

  • msmichel's rating of the film Wùlu

    Excellent debut feature from director Daouda Coulibably thats' Westernized plotting fits well into the director's intent to show the effect of the drug traffic on the eventual collapse of the Amadou Toumani Toure government. The lead performance by the stoic Ibrahim Koma is outstanding.

  • Krish sanghvi's rating of the film Wùlu

    On how terrorism is funded by the drug trade. On what common people have to endure and do in order to earn a more dignified life. On how culture has been lost to westernisation. On how the purpose of life has changed from seeking answers to existential questions about life, identity, society, and the universe, to materialistic pursuits. On French influence on Mali and how the only exit from a world of crime is death.

  • Korial's rating of the film Wùlu

    Trying to balance between a discourse on the History and Society of Mali (and Africa) and references to Western languages, ideas and themes (and trying to create an appeal to that audience) it falls for the latter. Occasional glimpses at a devastated country which do not raise questions about religious conflicts, westerners' responsibilities, neo-imperialism (and so on). Soulless, a missed opportunity.

  • TatiDelen's rating of the film Wùlu

    Plot wise the film is perhaps average, but it does offer a raw and dangerously realistic glimpse into a modern West Africa. The socio-political context is much more interesting, the film exposing drug trafficking, corruption, violence and socio-economic issues of the region. Overall, I liked it, it was a refreshing experience and the film showed the aspects of Africa that I have never seen before.

  • Loz Loory's rating of the film Wùlu

    Ibrahim Koma is an intriguingly subtle leading man. The plot was missing a little something to justify the end, but I appreciated the low key approach to the psychological pain Ladji was suffering. Much more interesting than "Scarface," as actors and scenes were not bombastic.

  • thelastronaut's rating of the film Wùlu

    Does anyone else feel like this could have been a TV series? I liked it but found myself wanting more. At times, it felt rushed or that the characters could have been fleshed out more. But neither sentence is a critique so much as they are a reflection of my feeling that this could make for a successful TV series.

  • Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Wùlu

    It may be predictable and, at times, unable to hide the low budget, but this is also a very easy film to watch and enjoy, mainly thanks to the decent lead performance from Ibrahim Koma and the fact that the setting (Bamako, capital of Mali) lends everything a slightly different flavour compared to what we've seen a hundred times over in American cinema.
