Timbuktu

We are the guardians of all deeds since we arrived in this territory. So states one of the self-described jihadists who, with his colleagues and some high-caliber weaponry, are presuming to rule a small village and its surrounding grazing land and waters near the place of the films title. A thoroughly remarkable and disquieting film from Malis Abderrahamane Sissako, Timbuktu is also a work of almost breathtaking visual beauty, but it manages to ravish the heart while dazzling the eye simultaneously, neither at the expense of the other. Its a work of art that seems realized in an entirely organic way. RE
