A movie of the highest order! Directed by Elvis Adidiema has outdone himself. This is seriously his best film to date.

I am not a fan Youssou N'Dour, but that aside, he is excellent and never seems to age, and his energy is great. So is Orphée Shungu and the entire cast. The cinematography is amazing
