The result: This great work of art has the potential to change the world.
This was for me the best film at Cannes 2004, a story vibrating with urgency and life. It makes a powerful statement and at the same time contains humor, charm and astonishing visual beauty.
A beautiful picture with a great heart, a classic-to-be with a common touch.
As drama the film mostly serves to illustrate the two sides of this crucial social debate in Africa.
Fatoumata Coulibaly's peformance is striking. She plays her character with a mixture of determination and compassion.
There's such a rich sense of the fullness of life in Moolaad that it sustains those passages that are truly and necessarily harrowing.
This richly textured parable feels every inch the work of a master.
