Ratings & Reviews

  1. Spiritchaser's rating of the film Buud Yam

    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.

  2. Gylfi's rating of the film Buud Yam

    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.

  3. Kenji's rating of the film Buud Yam

    Wise and assured, beautiful on the outside and beautiful on the inside.
