  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Tabataba

    A revelation of postcolonial cinema, Rajaonarivelo's film matches the graceful pace with the impressive lack of overdramatization given the intensity of its subject-matter. Against a beautifully captured tropical landscape, the dispossession of the natives is portrayed with an uncanny calmness that makes their plight all the more tragic. This is nuanced political cinema, acted with a restrained finesse.

  2. apexa's rating of the film Tabataba

    A different interpretation of what it means to be at war in the context of a war of fighting against colonialism: one that is largely embedded with moments of quiet and lack of action punctuated by the presence of war.
