This is the only work to come out of the absolute explosion of quarantine and pandemic related media that has had any sense of actual heart or integrity.
The ache of longing for a better time, a time which we took for granted in the moment, but was actually the best time of our lives. We wish we could hold our loved ones longer, tighter. We wish that we breathed in the sky more. "It's horrible to die alone".
This film also breathes with such a passion for filmmaking, and Diop with the intoxicating fumes of creation.
I really, really like it
