A movie with a message. I'm not too familiar with Meirelles' oeuvre, but clearly his approach is way less effective in Africa. The film felt forced, sentimental and pushy. The thriller elements aren't very exciting either, in the end I felt this subject would've worked a lot better as a documentary. Pretty disappointing.
