Profile of Bamako

The mood of Bamako is biting and touching. The plot centers around corporate crimes, gambling, and a legal investigation. It is a drama and foreign movie. In approach, Bamako is serious and realistic. The pacing is slow. It takes place, at least partly, in a bar, in a courtroom, and in a bank. Bamako is set in Africa. It happens in contemporary times.

Critics Reviews

Salon.com
A barrel of laughs, this ain't. But it's a fearless high-wire act, grim and witty, confrontational and self-mocking. Its message may be dire, but Bamako is a feat of intellectual and cinematic daring that will leave your brain buzzing.

Variety
Rather miraculously, picture succeeds in painlessly educating its viewers about global politics and economics while it describes contemporary Africa with freshness and clarity.
