KARIDJA has a wonderfully expressive face & needs a minimal script. The screenplay is compact & if it dwells it is not wasting but meaningful. The fights look authentic & the music score is correctly used . All the girls perform well – move over males!
Although the screenplay weakens quite noticeably the set designs are excellent throughout. Richard Jenkins not for the first time gives a professional supporting performance but takes a backseat to asshole Shannon and the perfectly cast Hawkins.
Patrick McGoohan adds interest to the cast but you need patience waiting for the exciting bits in the screenplay. It would be quicker to read the book which would then defeat the whole purpose of the exercise.
