Kim Bolarinwa's rating of the film Lamb

This story illustrates the beauty and hardship of rural Ethiopians through the eyes of a boy. The themes of poverty, importance of family, the position of women in society, religion and death are revealed in an straightforward manner. The acting is authentic and the cinematography is exquisite.
