City of Contrasts

City of Contrasts

A fictional documentary that portrays the city of Dakar, Senegal, as we hear the conversation between a Senegalese man (the director, Djibril Diop Mambéty) and a French woman, Inge Hirschnitz. As we travel through the city in a picturesque horse drawn wagon, we chaotically rush into this and that popular neighborhood of the capital, discovering contrast after contrast: A small African community waiting at the Church's door, Muslims praying on the sidewalk, the Rococo architecture of the Government buildings, the modest stores of the craftsmen near the main market.

Zeena B (au) wrote: It's a movie of fun and as I am a child I will speak for all children when I say it's not a bad movie it's actually really good

Calum B (ag) wrote: As a child I loved watching this movie and regarded it as one of my favourites, though recently I watched it again it was actually a delight to watch, the jokes are quite varied and usually funny, the slapstick style of humour can get a bit dry at times as David Arquettes keeps running into mishaps.The storyline it self is relatively boring and generic though this does not mean it cant be an enjoyable experience, the humour (especially for a kids movie) is spot on (get it? spot on?... anyway) and surprisingly the acting is not the worst, in my honest opinion it is underrated sometimes due to it's relatively not well known cast.Definitely a movie I would recommend.

Deadly V (jp) wrote: Very funny teen comedy with an unrealistic but sweet story. Definitely worth watching if you like teen flicks.

anders p (kr) wrote: Creepshow 2 follows the unfortunate pattern of a lot of horror movie sequels, which is that it is good in it's own right, but when compared to the original it's fucked. Creepshow 2 contains good stories, nice haunting visuals, classic dark themes, well written dialogue, and (Mostly) good acting. However, the films biggest downfall is that it's stories aren't as unique as those told in the original.

Matt H (nl) wrote: As far as the graffiti and hip hop culture is concerned, Style Wars is the beginning to anyone's education. One of the defining moments in both cultures, Style Wars represents the birth of a culture which is still growing to this day. A must see classic if you love street art, graffiti or hip hop.

Blais E (ru) wrote: Despicably unpleasant 80's "Alien" knock-off, bursting-at-the-seams with utterly vile splatter effects, loads of gratuitous female nudity (Not that there's anything wrong with that!), plentiful poorly-lit, low-rent, soft-core sex-scenes, & a simple-minded, extraneous plot ( A motley group of geneticists attempt to corral a slavering, murderous-mutant escapee from their lab with very unsuccessful results-), mainly present as an excuse to showcase the slightly pornographic & VERY moist & slimy goings-on. This is Producer Roger Corman's sleaziest effort ever (And that says alot!!), and I love it!! SPOILER ALERT: The drooling "Alien"-Imitation menace is finally done in at film's end by feeding it some cancerous tumors from the terminally-ill wacky-professor character (Joyously-hyper Fox Harris, in his ever-present mung-drenched lab coat-). They, of course are removed from him without the aid of anesthesia, & in very bloody close-up shots! Mmmm-mmmm!!! Somebody get me a spoon!!

Paul D (us) wrote: This movie doesn't always move at a steady pace, but it was interesting to watch. It isn't a great movie, but for a movie about the friendship between two women, it is about as good as I expected it to be.
