One of the most impressive African films I have ever seen. A fascinating journey which reminds of another film called Yeelen. These are myths to live by, and the most traditional forms of oral story-telling get passed on through cinema.
A great example of a film where a very simple and straightforward story, through serene and focused determination, is elevated to something truly beautiful. Spirituality and supernatural forces connect and intermingle with the raw forces of nature and life in general, manifesting itself through one man's journey of Burkina Faso's incredible landscape. The acting feels natural and Portal's music fits perfectly.
