If politics means autocracy and absence of democracy and justice.
The tension and axiousness of the spectator raises constantly from the beginning.
Almost like an antique drama about the twilight of the god(s).

Remarkable the music, for a political film playing in the poor tropics: the brass band trying to intonate the national anthems for the fest. The American entertainer brought in, having to get risen on the last steps to the fort by mules, the main road being blocked. The children's choir singing a heart breaking song about the life and fate of Haiti. The recorder playing in the prominent refugee's car playing 'Nazi music' according to the wife.
