For those who are not used to the style and pace of African films, TOUKI BOUKI might take some getting used to. While the film flows at a brisk pace (at least by African standards), it doesn't follow the conventional Hollywood narrative formula.
Like most African films, TOUKI BOUKI is more concerned with the community as a whole rather than the goals of its two "protagonists." Also, you won't see the quick cutting found in most Western films, particularly those involving crime or adventure.
However, if you can get past the difference of TOUKI BOUKI compared to Hollywood films, there is much to savor here. It is a different kind of ride, but well worth it.
Very good intro to senegalese film.

This film was okay. A weird movie, and it was sorta worth watching though I'm not sure why. Slow moving for American standards. Be patient if you're gonna watch it.Published on September 23, 2010 by Tristan Heberlein
