Time Out says

A campus protest movie, complete with drugs, generation gaps, fascistic policing and boy-girl problems. Cissé's students actually are living under a military dictatorship and trying to come to terms with a patriarchal society still weighed down with hundreds of superstitions. No one is caricatured, and the film develops its conflicts with splendid directness, shifting easily between realism and fantasy. It boils down to a fairly simple argument for liberal democracy, but the specifics of the setting give it an immediacy that an equivalent western film could never approach.
