Solo's Got Soul!

I met Souléymane Sy Savané in Beverly Hills about a year ago.
Now look at him! "A Force of Nature!"

I really liked this film. It's dark in context, yet shows how far the human spirit can take you in celluloid story telling.

GOODBYE SOLO: Movie Trailer - The best free videos are right here

"Goodbye Solo" is one of those joints that any and everyone can relate to.
From urbanite white women who've ever wondered about those 'africans' she bought her bootleg Coach bag from; to artsy fartsy 'students' who ponder the meaning of life endlessly through chain-smoking and uninspired painting.

We're dealing with a film that's Colderthanarats@ss here, I hope you cats dig it more than 'Slumdog . . .
