Critics reviews

The movie’s poetry is unique to Denis. The camera, largely handheld, moves in murmurs and bobs. The voice-over narration is spoken by one character, Dah (Isaach De Bankolé), but is almost entirely about another: Jocelyn (Descas), a cryptic and tragic figure whose mental deterioration is partly the focus of the movie. The whole thing is one complicated set of not-quite-contradictions. It’s violent, but subtle, equal parts meticulously researched and allegorical.
