Kidane (Ahmed) is a cattle farmer who lives outside of Timbuktu. His life is quiet and unremarkable, despite how ISIL has taken over the nearby city and imposed its strict law on the city's inhabitants, resulting in harsh punishments for singing or playing sports and death for suspected adultery. Most of the city's inhabitants view the laws as absurd. After all, the extremists break their own rules to smoke and talk about their favorite football teams.
A film of dazzling beauty set in a horrible situation, this nominee for Best Foreign Language Picture will leave you with a new sense of empathy for those who must live under petty tyrants.
