One of the 5 films nominated for an Oscar for best foreign film.
Rated 94% by critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (featuring a star-making performance from Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. Hers is a story that’s being played out around the world in conflict zones where cowardly adults make children do unspeakable things. What War Witch introduces into that narrative is a notion of hope and resilience in the heart of a child, an impossible love story filled with magic and picturesque images.
“A moving and emotional powerhouse…War Witch packs a punch.” – Movieline
“[Rachel Mwanza’s] wrenching lead performance…is one of the finest of the year….the Congolese actress commands the screen with her presence.” – The Playlist
” The film continues to haunt long after the end credits roll. ” – Vaiety
