Xala (1975). 2h 3m | Not Rated

“Sembene was once again the failing of government in Senegal and even most of Africa. This time after native Africans come to power.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe juxtaposition of regular, hard-working, citizens with the spoiled, corrupt, and prejudice (to their own citizens) government officials packs a heavy message. And unlike most, Sembene simply does not photograph the regular citizens for the simple juxtaposition, he keeps on them, showing you their true problems, and showing you their sacrifice.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll the while, hilarity ensues the corrupt government officials as hijinks after hijinks. The biggest problem being El Hadjiu0026#39;s Xala … he canu0026#39;t get it up for his young third wife.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTruly an interesting, intelligent, and worthwhile cinematic experience. And even if that doesnu0026#39;t seem to to interest you, watch it for the laughter … thereu0026#39;s plenty of it.”
