A film from Chad is already a rarity in the context of international cinema. But an African film that avoids the vices of for export picturesque and politically correct common places is practically a miracle. Picturing a tense father-son relationship and the inner conflicts of a luxury hotel where they both work doing things like taking care of the pool, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, director of the very interesting Daratt, describes the degree of social decomposition people experience in a country like Chad, which is desolated by a cruel and endless civil war that demands more and more from its inhabitants every day. Winner of the Jury Prize at the latest edition of the Cannes Film Festival, Un homme qui crie is conceived with such rigor and nobility that it almost completely avoids the didacticism and clumsiness we find in much of that always well-intended but often Manichaean and predictable African cinema.
