  1. dionysus67's rating of the film God of Thunder

    Abandoned by the Gods, the Diola tribe men are violently being recruited to join the French army in WWII Europe, whilst those who stay behind are called to give up their rice reserves. Beyond the subsιstence value the sacrality of rice generates resistance and ensuing punishment. Sembène's film makes use of color symbolism for the dispossessed people's exploitation and sufferings, shooting in sparse yet moving style.
