Daouda Coulibaly’s assured and suspenseful film, with excellent characterization and a meticulous script, belies the fact that this is a first feature. Set in Bamako in 2007, against a backdrop of rising fundamentalism, the film has universal resonance. Ladji, a 20-year-old man, works hard as a prantiké (bus driver) to get his older sister, Aminata, out of prostitution. When he doesn’t get the promotion he was expecting, he decides to contact a drug dealer who owes him a favor. This “Scarface in Mali” film portrays a culture and a country that have been underrepresented in film. ~OY
