In 1989, Mozambique is a country ruined by civil war. The train that connects Nampula to Malawi is the only hope for people willing to risk their lives to exchange a few bags of salt for sugar. Running slowly over sabotaged tracks, the journey is filled with obstacles and violence.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
i saw this film at the Festival del film Locarno and i chose 1* because the story could have been nice, but it wasnt because it was bad written. The characters werent credible (the commander walk into a land mine and DONT DIE), he walk in the battle scenes without getting hit. When there are battle scenese u never see the enemy. nice idea but bad made. u should see this film as trash film (boollywood style).
