OFF_FRAME's rating of the film I Am Not a Witch

Expecting something similar to Rebelle I was pleasantly surprised by this often humorous but biting look at sexism, ignorance and misogyny shaped around the tale of a young girl accused of being a witch. Great performances, in particular the character of Mr Banda who is a joy to watch and reminiscent of a Bruno Dumont film.The ending is abrupt, music mismatched but this is def worth a watch. Refreshing, 3.5 stars
