An African Classic

Lets remember this is an African production so look beyond the occasional lack of big budget filming. This film has a great story and keeps you watching until the end which is more than can be said for many Hollywood movies. Kudos to all involved and the fact Kenyan authorities have chosen to ban it suggests they fear how good this films moral lessons actually is.

An audacity for hope

In Kenya, not only is homosexuality illegal, the clergy routinely preaches against it, and the general population is against it. So things get tricky when 2 young women become friends (Rafiki, apparently, means friend), and then lovers. One complication is that their fathers are running for political office against each other. Meanwhile, the dress-allergic Kena's divorced mother's big dream is to see Kena marry a doctor, while Ziki points out that Kena has good enough marks to become a doctor herself. Seen at the Toronto International Film Festival, the director pointed out that Rafiki was banned in Kenya for being "too hopeful". The camerawork and music gives a good feel for some section of Nairobi, but the leads (even with an acting coach) do show their inexperience.

PURE DYNAMITE ALL THROUGH

I'm only watching this in November and I can't believe it has eluded me all this while. It draws you in from the first second and you completely forget everything else till its over, then you wish it wasn't.
