(aka 'Our Father')

directed by  Mahamat-Saleh Haroun
France / Chad / Netherlands 2002

 

  From a dusty village in the Republic of Chad, two brothers, Amine and Tahir­, set out in search of their father. Reflecting on the rhythm of Africa, Abouna is a film rich in culture with a deep understanding of the human condition in general and youth in particular. This devastatingly powerful, magnificently photographed drama is director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's triumphant follow-up to his international award-winning Bye Bye Africa.

Theatrical Release: May 20th, 2002 - Cannes Film Festival

Comments:

As far as non-progressive transfers go, this is definitely not the worst I have ever seen. Minor 'combing' was evident in many horizontal pans. The image has a black border around it hence not taking advantage of the full horizontal resolution. It is a little soft but colors aren't bad. Subtitles and the original audio are consistent and acceptable. There are some nice extras in the package including a director interview and two of his short films. So, we have a great film, sub-par transfer in an excellent package. Worthy to pick-up as I highly doubt it will be coming out by anyone else soon.  out of
