A critique of venus noire a film by abdellatif kechiche

However, it lacks artistic direction and balance.

The same applied for the ending although there were some explanatory subtitles and compensating visual glimpses of when she was returned to South Africa. Yes, she drank and smoked and was inevitably sensitive and temperamental given her real life role play but this is indeed an extraordinary film about an extraordinary woman who is extraordinary for her courage and determination and not so unordinary from any other woman except for her buttocks and her labia, according to the medical scientists.

There was a lack of cohesion at times in the transition from going London to Paris and then later when Saartje found herself in the Brothels.

On a general note, there is no swearing or offensive violence, despite the harsh treatment Saartje Baartman endured while away from South Africa. What we see in this film is no different from what still goes on in our world today but in a different way.

The explanation in the movie is all too bland and passed over for the most part. I suggest that there are a lot of other movies out there who will shock and offend you a whole lot more than this one.

We go-global in order to see the very thing that this humble woman was subjected to and we pay to see it, sometimes on the internet - animals as well as humans - and it is only perhaps in western countries that there are anti-voice against the abuse in circuses.

Yes this is not a film for the faint hearted, it is extremely graphic and harsh in its direction to say the least and certainly long at 2 hours 40 minutes comparable with the Hobbit which I saw on new Years Eve.

The film is an artistic portrayal of a dignified South African tribal woman who is abused and misled once she arrives first to England and then later to Paris.

I may be wrong here but this is a French film and so good sub-titles in English or language of your choice are important. The standard of acting in this film is excellent. Unlike the spectators shown throughout the film, we have the benefit of a greater education and enhanced knowledge but abuse such as Saartje Baartman is shown to endure in the movie, goes on to this day.
