  1. josé neves's rating of the film City of Contrasts

    PC. Contemporary of the formal actions with which Jean Rouch has expanded and problematized the practice of documentary cinema, articulating experimentalism with the most refined criticism of colonialism, also Mambéty, without copyism and with a personal discourse, confirmed by his subsequent films, composes in a high mood a look of his city that goes from the French colonization to the slums of his town.

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film City of Contrasts

    This has been called a comedy, but it is really a documentary, with a bit of sarcasm. Senegalese cinema is great, not enough people know that. Maybe because there just isn't enough of it, but what there is, is great.

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film City of Contrasts

    Un breve acercamiento a Senegal como una ventana a la fantasía francesa.

  4. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film City of Contrasts

    I became a fan of this the moment this line was uttered: "...so they abandoned the Quran for the liquoran". Hahaha, Mambety shares my fondness for wordplay.
