Comments about the soundtrack for Nowhere in Africa (Niki Reiser)

Edit | Delete
a condescending and simplistic review of 'Africa'

The soundtrack is excellent - highly emotive and powerful. But the review on this site makes africa sound like some glorified country instead of a vastly diverse continent undergoing rapid transformation of its many faces. there is no 'kenyan' language. there are more than 42, infact. and 'native' africans exist no more than 'native' londoners or newyorkers. in short, the sountrack is amazing althought the movie does condescend to its kenyan characters, but the review here made me wonder if i was reading some colonial manuscript...
