Elash's rating of the film Grigris

I was captivated by this without really knowing why. I think it was the lack of a soundtrack and the way everything was so matter of fact, like "here is one life in this hardscrabble country." I felt like it was made to draw awareness to Chad. I also wonder why the French spoken was so simple; all these elements seemed designed not to distract from the story. No flourishes, just a good story.
