  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Mandabi

    Around a money-order, which Ibrahim fails to collect, the Senegalese auteur weaves a colorfol tapestry of patriarchy, polygamy, daily struggle for basic needs, usury, migration, colonial past. With a great lead in the role of desperate Ibrahim, the film contains both touches of humor and some brilliant lines about money's rootlessness or on the function of lies. Money's 'pollution' of transactions is a central motif.

  3. mubianer's rating of the film Mandabi

    35mm. I loved the colours, they looked great on film. Otherwise this might not be Sembene's best movie. But I liked the slow pace and the simple story line.
