Time Out says
There’s a fuel crisis in Kinshasa, and Riva (Patsha Bay) is a hustler, a charming player with his eyes on a supply of petrol from Angola. But everybody wants a piece of the pie – gangster César (Hoji Fortuna), crime boss Azor (Diplome Amekindra) and soldier Nora (Manie Malone), and even the nuns aren’t afraid of a bit of wheeling and dealing. Our guide is JM (Alex Herabo), Riva’s old friend, whom he drags away from family for an odyssey in the Congolese capital. Much of the film is crass. But still Munga doesn’t shrink from painting Congo as the seventh circle of hell, and his frenetic story is interesting in its promises of big deals, new lives and sexier women – the ambitions of weak men who think with their genitals, fuelled by greed. You’ll need some patience to wrangle with this conflicted beast, but it’s never dull.
