The title of the movie "Timbuktu," was last year that miss it was difficult: in a festival participated in the other prize was nominated in the third place to win something. The hype my experience can turn what as a positive in many ways, the film  & overrated dud, but to know for certain is only looking personally.

The action of "Timbuktu" is developing in the same city where come to power Islamists are actively imposing their own laws and customs, which is negatively perceived by the local population. In fact, of the scenes of interaction between Islamists and ordinary people and develops film. Conventionally, of course, is the main storyline, about XIDAN killed a fisherman, his wife and daughter, but it is mixed with many small loosely-coupled parallel stories, revealing the one and the same topic: the injustice of Sharia law and brutality lead them in the performance of people. The prohibition of naked arms fishwife, despite the obvious discomfort, abduction and marriage against the will of girls her parents are medieval methods of punishment like the stoning or lashes for what language is not even dare to nuisance call — the whole kaleidoscope of small stories beats in one purpose: denouncing radical Islam. With the standpoint of Western morality, of course.

So coincidence Islamization in recent topical issue for many countries, hence, probably, this Mediacom around this film. He relevant. To unfortunately, it is the biggest advantage. This esteem is enough for five-minute news report, but for a film with a length of over one and a half hours looking for something else. For example, the plot. But, as I wrote above, the main storyline in"Timbuktu" in fact, there is just a set of different, almost no overlapping scenes, which are United in one common idea. Most of the actors played as if for the first time in front of the camera, recite the text terribly — for a documentary would have gone, but the film is art!

Summing up I can say that how to me the painting is overrated, Yes — relevant, but to watch this mediocre film it is possible to replace by viewing a news report, well, or more, about the lives of civilians on conquered territories by the Islamists. What journalists put in a five-minute commercials, "Timbuktu" smeared on an hour and a half, and, of course, the benefit of the film is not gone.

And you know that the Touareg is not only the name of the machine? So here is a film about the Tuaregs, the mysterious people in the clothes of Indigo, who live in isolated groups in many African countries. The Tuareg is not just the nation, it is a separate culture. Some enthusiastic researchers say that these people came from Space, prove geometric patterns of their famous silver jewelry.

These people are very original in the issue of male and female roles. In contrast other traditional African cultures, the woman is free to the world of the Tuareg. And something even higher than a man, women for centuries have been more educated and had the right to vote in the tribe.

And we see in the film of the Tuareg family (husband, wife and daughter), who remained in the deserted village in Timbuktu. All the neighbors left, to power the Islamists, who have decided that you know better how to live properly. A free woman Tuareg are knows how to obey, and devoted man of the Tuareg will be up to the end is near it...

Unhurried and detached film about the irreversible changes that occur in our world. About the fatal doom of the desert.

Interesting to see how living in Africa. Timbuktu is a city, but looks like the village. Earthen mounds, houses and around Sands Sands.. People catch fish in the lake, in which the depth of the knee herd of skinny cows. Peaceful nomadic life leads the family of pastoralists, they are happy. Every day they await the return of the father in their tents of skins. I like many details of how shampoo the desert! Where else can you see? The wife and especially the daughter of a herdsman — beautiful. But this cozy little world without any sign of civilization, breaks a new culture — radical Islam. The Director tried, after watching the engulfing hatred. How beautiful was the black woman singing the national song of Timbuktu, who cries from injustice, although it is the land of joy and love. Even visually, there are 2 world — bright national clothes of women and black mourning sheets, which are imposed by the radicals. And this film is about the freedom, national roots. Pursuing the fleeing antelope, in which insurgents shoot, it's the symbol of everything beautiful that was Timbuktu. How can kill a beautiful animal for fun? Running antelope — the image of the beautiful daughter of cattleman Toei, which is doomed in this world of radical Muslims.
