A fotografia capta bem a emoção de cada momento, e mesmo não havendo uma especificação geográfica, retrata os recantos africanos de uma forma convidativa. No entanto, o ritmo monótono e uma investigação de que não se percebe bem o porquê, deixam algo a desejar.
It lacks nerve to be instigating or determination to be inquisitive. It's an anemic passive film that results in a "nor-nor" attitude: not about memory - although it seems - nor about the historical process of colonization.
