"A refreshingly original action-horror hybrid. It’s also just really damn cool."—Marya E. Gates,

"[Saloum] freely mixes and marries the cinematic languages of spaghetti Westerns, samurai dramas and classic monster movies to tell an exciting and distinctly African story"—Richard Kuipers, Variety

"Strap in; Jean Luc Herbulot's Saloum is nothing less than 84 minutes of pure African genre mayhem, with little interest in pausing long enough for you to catch your breath."—Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Film International

Shot down after fleeing a coup and extracting a drug lord from Guinea-Bissau, a group of mercenaries must lie low at a remote holiday camp, stash their stolen haul, and repair their plane to escape back to Dakar, Senegal in this magical realist neo-western from Jean Luc Herbulot.
