FilmEdie's rating of the film Atlantiques

Quiet power. A sort of micro-verite, like a 16 min zoom into (beacon onto) these actual moments being had in Senegal. (Registers a bit, sensorily, like the memory of being there.) And to hear these young men expressing so frankly (because that's how you express your reality) emotions that we recognize get to stay, for most of us watching, mercifully untapped... The lighthouse beacon shots at the end were beautiful.
