Foreign Film Friday Review:
La Noire De feels more important than feels entertaining. It’s cultural importance is huge, being the first feature from the director regarded as the father of African Film. And yet that doesn’t make anything stand out too much to me, for it’s time this is a story that wouldn’t have been told at all and it gets points for that, but there just isn’t a lot here in the hour run time. This felt similar to when I watched Le Planète Sauvage as it clearly has a unique style but often left me bored throughout.
