This title seriously needs to be changed to its original Der Leone Have Sept Cabecas. The original title itself is a deliberate polyglot mixture of German, English, French, and Portuguese in order to reflect the polyglot and chaotic nature of the film.
A powerful voice for Africa's surplus of suffering, Rocha's vitriolic attack on the many evils that befall the Black Continent, like colonialism, exploitation, puppet givernments, Christian proselytization, Cold War imperialism, ex-Nazi mercenaries is Brechtean enough with characters addressing the audience. Brogi and Leaud reinforce the conflict and the indignant militancy of the film does not detract from style.
