"The most politically urgent film in the 2006 New York Film Festival and also the most formally audacious, combines a bracing indictment of the world financial system with a subtle glimpse at daily life in Africa. At the center of this film from Mali is a mock trial. It's a film that needs to be seen, argued over, and seen again." - New York Times
