Congorama (2006)

While it’s heartening that independent/ foreign films are more highly regarded than in the past, it’s equally disappointing to see the unfair expectation placed upon them to be exceedingly poignant. However, any effort to be conspicuously deep will necessarily result in overwrought elements. Fortunately for some audiences but unfortunately for others, none of the characters in this story is exiled, oppressed or coming of age. The story is nothing if not consistent in both tone and style; if you enjoy irony, this film has it in spades, which seems to be a recurring complaint among viewers.
