Straight up the stupidest twist I’ve ever seen in a movie. Beyond stupid and actually makes the entire thing less interesting.
Really amazing film that kept me engaged throughout the entire runtime. The metaphor that the film is engaging in is somewhat accessible but I feel like those more familiar in the regions history would get more out of it. As someone not super familiar with French colonialism it wasn’t until reading about the film that I picked up on other themes that it presents. It feels kind of unfair to claim this as a negative but I think for some people the symbolism may be a little lost. Other than that I think it’s a nearly perfect movie.
