Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety. Inspried by Monica Arac de Nyeko's "Jambula Tree", which chronicles a story of two girls in love in Uganda, "Rafiki" challenges deep rooted cynicism about same sex relationships among actors, crew, friends, and family in Kenya.

I had the pleasure of seeing this movie on the big screen at the 2011 San Diego Film Festival. It is a wonderful film that is both funny and moving. I found it to be very unique and very moving. The characters are well developed and the story is very interesting. I think that the movie is about two people who have very different personalities. The film is also very good in terms of the cinematography and the performances. The two leads, especially the female lead, are amazing. She is very strong and very strong-willed. I really liked her performance. The supporting cast also did a great job. This is a very good film. It is well worth seeing. I would recommend this film to anyone.

If you are a fan of cinema, I would say this is a must see. It is one of the most beautifully filmed movies I have ever seen. The cast is absolutely wonderful. I especially love the chemistry between the two leads. There are many wonderful scenes and the plot is very interesting. I have never seen a movie quite like this before. I hope to see more from this director in the future. This movie is not for the weak hearted. If you can handle the romance and the drama, you will not be disappointed. I give it a 10/10

I have been watching this movie for a few years now and I can say that it is a great movie for a "lonely" person. I do not know why it has not been more popular in the UK, but I think it is because people expect to see a "happy" movie and they get bored easily. But if you do not like the idea of the movie, just ignore it and you will not miss a thing. This movie is very realistic and very romantic. It is not like a typical Hollywood movie where the "love" story is told to the audience in a boring way. I think it is a very good movie for a lonely person to watch and a good reminder to stay in touch with your soul.

I am a fan of the "Lost" series. This movie is very good. The acting was superb. The story was interesting and the ending was good. I am very disappointed with the ending of the series. I am disappointed because I wanted more of the story. I was disappointed because the ending of the series is not good. I was also disappointed because I wanted more of the movie. I hope that this movie will come out in the theaters. I am a fan of the movie. I think that it is a very good movie. I recommend that people should see this movie.

This is the first film I have seen in a long time that made me cry. I can't believe I haven't seen this before. I have a feeling that this film will become a cult classic, and I would be happy to watch it again. It was just so beautiful, it was so touching. The characters are so real, you feel like you are right there with them, you are with them through the whole film. I have seen a lot of films and this one is a great film. I recommend it to everyone. 10/10

This is one of the most beautiful movies I've seen in a long time. The photography is incredible, the story is moving and the music is beautiful. The actors are perfect, especially the two main actors who play the lovers. The movie is very much like the book, which I loved. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies that are about love and about love between two people. I have seen this movie 3 times and I still find it very moving. I have read the book and I really like it, but I can't say that I like it as much as the movie. I think the book is better. The movie is a must see.

I saw this film as a family, and it was absolutely beautiful. The music, the story, the visuals, and the acting were all fantastic. I don't think I've ever seen a movie so well done. The characters were well developed and the chemistry between them was great. The film is based on a real story, and the actors were chosen to portray the characters with the best of intentions. I was impressed by the acting, and I think the director did an excellent job of making the film believable. I loved it, and I hope to see it again. It was a beautiful film, and I hope to see it again. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

A beautiful film, well acted, beautifully shot, and well written. This film is in the tradition of the Brothers Grimm tales and is beautifully shot. The characters are well drawn and the acting is great. The music is also very good. This is one of those films that is better than the book and it is very much worth watching. It is the best of the movies that I have seen this year.

I just watched this movie with my wife and we both LOVED it. I love the way the movie was shot. It is a very romantic story and the way the characters are portrayed are very real. I was a little disappointed with the ending but I guess that is to be expected. The way the movie was shot made it look like a documentary and I liked that. The actors were very believable and I liked how they were portrayed. I think the movie is great and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good romantic movie.

This film is amazing! I'm a huge fan of Darren Aronofsky's films, and I absolutely love this one. The characters are so real, the plot is great, and the music is fantastic! The first half of the film is amazing, the second half is fantastic. I love it. It's a must see for everyone, especially fans of Darren Aronofsky!

I watched this movie a couple of times over the years and it always has stuck in my mind. It is one of those movies that is so rich in symbolism that you feel that you are actually living it. The characters are very interesting and very well written. The main characters are not just someone's friends or a romantic interest, they are someone who has their own life. They have different things in their life that they want to do and they are trying to do it, but they are also trying to make the best of it. It is a very interesting movie that has a lot of depth. I think it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is one of those movies that is so well written that it will keep you interested for the whole movie. I highly recommend this movie.

The movie is about a man who is in love with a woman who is not his wife. The man is trying to convince his wife to marry him. The woman is not receptive to the man's advances. She believes that she will never be able to have a relationship with a man. The movie ends with the man telling his wife that he will always love her and that she will always love him. The movie is very moving. The acting is very good. The cinematography is very good. The direction is very good. The music is very good. The story is very moving. I recommend this movie to anyone.
