Full movie description "Tall as the Baobab Tree":Coumba and her little sister Debo are the first to leave their family's remote African village, where meals are prepared over open fires and water is drawn from wells, to attend school in the bustling city. But when an accident suddenly threatens their family's survival, their father decides to sell 11-year-old Debo into an arranged marriage. Torn between loyalty to her elders and her dreams for the future, Coumba hatches a secret plan to rescue her young sister from a fate she did not choose. A powerful voice from Africa's young generation, Grand comme le Baobab (Tall as the Baobab Tree) poignantly depicts a family struggling to find its footing at the outer edge of the modern world... where questions of right and wrong are not always black and white.
Reviews of the Tall as the Baobab TreeI am Eritrean-American and my dad and I love to watch things from Africa. We usually tour African Capital cities through YouTube. Now I wanted to put on an African movie because it is one of the few movies he would be willing to watch. He is not a Batman fan. He calls those types of movies, "exaggeration". lol that is the point. That being said, I found this movie through a Google recommendation and I just finished watching it. Let me just tell you why I love this movie. First, the people are real. I cannot believe I just watched a movie with real genuine people and it was in a film set in Africa (usually the most stereotyped people). I felt like these people were the decedents of the herders who came thousands of years before them. I was so happy to see these people and to love them in this movie. A good example of this was the brother who was calm, cared about his sisters, and had a soft voice. I was happy to see a real human being. Usually the black male is portrayed as loud, aggressive, and dominant. It also shows that Africa is a big continent, and every culture is different. Some loud some more quite. Even my dad noticed how the family spoke to each other while eating lunch "Look, they are speaking calm, they don't yell like us" The second thing I loved about this movie was the main character. The older sister. She was amazing. I don't know how to put it into words, but she was the star. I felt a lot of real emotion in this movie. It was so real, just perfect, no fake nonsense or extra made up drama, no twists and turns, just the love and problems of a family living in a traditional society.
